ISL - A String Manipulating Language.
Kelley, K.C.; And Others.
The Information Search Language (ISL), described in this report, is a problem-oriented language designed to facilitate the manipulation of real character strings with the Control Data 1604 computer. The report gives instructions for the language; these may be classified as Pseudo-ops, Word-Oriented instructions, Character-string instructions, Transfers, and Input-output instructions. (The ISL language is imbedded in the ILLAR assembly language used at the Coordinated Science Laboratory, Illinois University.) The requirements imposed by the ILLAR system on ISL are given in this report in addition to the features of the ILLAR system which are immediately available to the ISL programmer. Useful program driven subroutines and typewriter driven routines are also described. (Author/RM)
