The Enhancement of Interactive Computing for CAI Users Through Development of a Multilingual Interpreter.
Hayes, Joan; Kheriaty, Larry
The Multilingual Interpreter (MI), a language processor capable of executing more than one language, is being used at Western Washington State College to enhance interactive computing for computer-assisted instructional (CAI) users. The MI's two major functions are, first, that of scanning and translating a source language into internal interpretive code, accomplished by programs called front-end processors, and, second, that of interpreting, or executing the internal code, accomplished by a program called the generalized interpreter. As a result, unsophisticated users are equipped with an easy-to-learn language whose power can continue to satisfy them as their needs increase in complexity. APL is also provided despite the fact that the available core is limited to 84k. (PB)
