JOSTRAN: An Interactive Joss Dialect for Writing and Debugging Fortran Programs.
Graham, W. R.; Macneilage, D. C.
JOSTRAN is a JOSS dialect that expedites the construction of FORTRAN programs. JOSS is an interactive, on-line computer system. JOSS language programs are list-processed; i.e., each statement is interpreted at execution time. FORTRAN is the principal language for programing digital computers to perform numerical calculations. The JOSS language permits greater flexibility and sublety, but FORTRAN can handle larger calculations. JOSTRAN, a specified FORTRAN-compatible dialect of JOSS, combines the advantages of both languages. It allows the user to exploit JOSS's interactive, list-processing facilities while writing and debugging a program, and facilitates the translation of the JOSTRAN program into FORTRAN. (Author/JY)
