This thesis addresses object oriented programming languages; and a restrictive definition of object oriented programming languages is presented and defended. Differences between programming
languages are discussed and related to interactive integrated programming environments. Topics related to user friendly interface to the computer system and modem programming practice are discussed. The thesis especially addresses features in object oriented programming languages that are important when a user friendly interactive integrated programming environment is
designed. Some future research areas are suggested.
