- Dataflow is a domain-specific specification language.
It models streaming signal processing well.
It is not well suited for general-purpose computing.
Consider a word processor that uses a large amount of memory
to represent the state of the program.
Word processing commands work alter the state.
This functionality is not represented well in pure dataflow modeling.

slides 1-8 and 28-39 of the lecture Dataflow Languages in
