(* Main program for the QPL interpreter, mainly routines to *)
(* evaluate the abstract syntax parse tree *)
(* This file is mainly composed of eval_* functions - one for every
syntactical rule of spl. After the parsing is finished, "main"
is selected from the list of functions and the interpretation commenced
from there.
The abstract syntax tree is mainly composed of records (defined in that represent the different language elements.
The symbol table is implemented in Basically, this is
a hashtable using strings (that represent the symbol names) as keys
and returning both type (Integer, Float or Void) and value of an
expression. Additionally, it is enriched with the ability to create
a hierarchy of environments so that definitions made in "older" envs
propagate to "newer" envs, but not vice versa. This mostly resembles
activation records in block structured languages
The environment is _not_ implemented as a global variable, but
is passed to every evaluation function. The same holds for the list
of functions: It too must be passed to every evaluation functions
because the (sub)statements that are evaluated might call another
function which need to be looked up then.
Note that functions are _not_ managed in the symbol table,
but live in a different namespace (they are kept in a linked list that
is constructed during parse stage), so there cannot be clashes
btw. variables and functions.

parser and the new general structure of the compiler with more
