GLURP-Generalized Language for Understanding and Responding to People. Information System for Vocational Decisions.
GLURP (Generalized Language for Understanding and Responding to People) is a mid-point version of a script-writing computer language which had been intended by the developers of the Information System for Vocational Decisions (ISVD). Because ISVD aimed at allowing the student user to control the order and quantity of data flow (in an English language context) to the console certain requirements were demanded of the author language. This paper describes: (1) the current status of ISVD's author language (GLURP); (2) its adaptation to machines other than the RCA Spectra or IBM 360 on which it can presently be used; and (3) some system and language problems which were not solved due to insufficient time. Other computer languages used in constructing GLURP are discussed in the appendices. (TL)
