Meaning of BONDAGE-AND-DISCIPLINE LANGUAGE

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

A language (such as pascal, ada, APL, or Prolog) that, though ostensibly general-purpose, is designed so as to enforce an author's theory of "right programming" even though said theory is demonstrably inadequate for systems hacking or even vanilla general-purpose programming. Often abbreviated "B&D"; thus, one may speak of things "having the B&D nature".

See pascal. Compare languages of choice.
