I found this paper after doing a search on 'reflection' and 'programming languages'. Of course many links were fostering Java's Reflection API but I was looking for a general overview of Reflection or one that focused on a project that delt specifically with C.

This article provides a short overview of Reflection, and also provides some ideas for reflection-oriented programming as a paradigm. One of the things that peeked my interest was the focus on compiled languages, where the source code was no longer available.

My apologies if I posted a duplicate. I couldn't find the paper in my search on lambda so, in turn, I posted. This is my first post to lambda and thank you and the rest of the editors for providing a very educational place.

I meant to say that it seems I failed to mention it in the past. So it's great you did.

And anyway, it's quite alright to go rediscover older papers. I do it all the time..
