Introduction to Computer Programming Languages.
Bork, Alfred M.
JCST, P 12-16 December 1971
A brief introduction to computer programing explains the basic grammar of computer language as well as fundamental computer techniques. What constitutes a computer program is made clear, then three simple kinds of statements basic to the computational computer are defined: assignment statements, input-output statements, and branching statements. A short description of several available computer languages is given along with an explanation of how the newcomer would make use of basic computer software. Finally, five different versions of a simple program (for solving the harmonic oscillator numerically) are given with comparison. (RB)
