HAGGIS is a high-level reference programming language used primarily to examine Computing Science for Scottish pupils taking SQA courses on the subject. HAGGIS is used as a tool to bridge the gap between pseudocode and typical computer programming. HAGGIS is not based on any one language but a mixture that is intended to allow a pupil familiar with any of the many languages used in classrooms to easily understand the syntactic construct being used in an example.

RETURN THIS <Class Property> END FUNCTION '''“THIS” is used to reference the current object invoking the method.''' PROCEDURE <Procedure Name> () The users' '''HAGGIS''' code will then go here.
