## Papers on Vocabularies; Workflows; Function Evaluation

I'm working on three papers at the moment.  They're partly work related -
one and a half are for ADASS in a month or two - but I'm also hoping I can
distribute them with my CV.  Maybe this sounds terribly over-blown, but I
think they show my style' as a developer.  It's easy to write in the CV
"application of ideas from language research - using theory in the real
world", but I suspect few people know what that means.  So soon they will
have:

- A paper that uses formal grammar to make a useful "vocabulary" for FITS
headers.

- A simple workflow system whose design is guided by the idea that control
structures should be recursive.

- An implementation of a simple function evaluator that takes ideas from
functional language circles and shows that they can be made to work in
Java.
