The acronym CLAM stands for: C Lambda Abstraction.
A CLAM is therefore an implementation of a lambda
abstraction as defined in ARS in the programming
Because a CLAM is an encapsulation of data and
procedures (the lambda abstraction with its
total environment) it can be compared to an object
in object oriented technology. The easy to apply
CLAM pattern derived from ARS provides a C
programmer with all the whistles and bells
functional programming and object oriented
programming are justly so proud of.
