Abstract : We study an idealized programming language that prevents raised exceptions to escape their scope of declaration by means of static exception handlers which act as safeguards. We present 3 different kinds of semantics: an operational semantics, based on a quasi term-rewriting system that specifies a completely deterministic evaluation strategy; a reduction semantics, based on lambda-calculus like reduction relations that satisfy Church-Rosser property; a denotational semantics, based on call-by-value continuation passing. We prove that these 3 semantics coincide on programs.
