These features are described in terms of format, labels, numeric variables, alphanumeric variables, system variables, expressions and operators, functions, op-codes or commands, entering PILOT programs on the Horizon computer system, and running PILOT programs. Appendices describe proper use of vectors or arrays in PILOT programs, and exponential notation and ASCII code. (MV)
