Tutorial on Generalized Programming Language s and Systems. Instructor Edition.
Fasana, Paul J., Ed.; Shank, Russell, Ed.
This instructor's manual is a comparative analysis and review of the various computer programing languages currently available and their capabilities for performing text manipulation, information storage, and data retrieval tasks. Based on materials presented at the 1967 Convention of the American Society for Information Science, the manual describes FORTRAN, a language designed primarily for mathematical computation; SNOBOL, a list-processing language designed for information retrieval application; COBOL, a business oriented language; and PL/I, a new language incorporating many of the desirable features of FORTRAN and COBOL but as yet implemented only for the IBM 360 computer system.
