An Advanced Programming Technique for a Cost-Effective Hardware-Independent Realization of Naval Software Systems. Final Technical Report, Part II.
Computer Symbolic, Inc., Washington, DC.
A pseudo assembly language, PAL, was developed and specified for use as the lowest level in a general, multilevel programing system for the realization of cost-effective, hardware-independent Naval software. The language was developed as part of the system called FIRMS (Fast Iterative Recursive Macro System) and is sufficiently general to allow ease of transferability from one machine to another but is sufficiently close to most existing machine assembly languages to insure efficient utilization of machine assembly features. PAL's syntax is specially designed to allow efficient processing by a macro assembler which will be written in a subset of PAL, allowing more computerization of the implementation process and requiring less recoding in transferal.
