The WRITEACOURSE Language: Programming Manual. Revised Edition.
Zosel, Mary; And Others
WRITEACOURSE is a programing language for man-computer interactions. It was originally designed for writing computer assisted instruction courses, but it can also be used to control a remote terminal in a variety of applications which involve display and editing of characters. It is not suited for applications which use the computer as an arithmetical calculator. This manual describes the Fortran version of WRITEACOURSE; it could be implemented on a conversational computer system supporting either the PL/I or Fortran IV programing language. Directed primarily toward the unskilled course author, the manual is divided into an introduction, a programing manual, a formal language description in the Backus-Naur notation, and a system description. The latter is intended to aid a systems programer in maintaining WRITEACOURSE, in adding new capabilities, or implementing a new version. Supplements include flow charts, diagrams, and a complete listing of the Fortran operating program. (Author/JY)
