Const

From Mesham parallel programming language

Syntax

const[ ]

Semantics

Enforces the read only property of a variable.

Example

function void main() {
   var a:Int;
   a:=34;
   a:(a :: const[]);
   a:=33;
};

The code in the above example will produce an error. Whilst the first assignment (a:=34) is legal, on the subsequent line the programmer has modified the type of a to be that of a combined with the type const. The second assignment is attempting the modify a now read only variable and will fail.
