The LOGO-S Language and the Portable LOGO System. Volume I: Language and System Descriptions. Volume II: Program Listings. Report No. 3968.
Feurzeig, Wallace; And Others
This two volume report presents descriptions of LOGO-S, an interactive programming language expressly designed for education, and the portable LOGO system, a computer software development. The modular structure of LOGO, along with its simple but powerful extension features, is naturally suited to problem solving in many problem domains with students at all levels of education. To make LOGO widely available on diverse computer systems the portable LOGO system is being developed. This software system greatly reduces the amount of work and the level of skill required to implement LOGO on minicomputers and microcomputers. The major products of this project are (1) the design and specification of a proposed standard LOGO language, LOGO-S; (2) the development of a portable LOGO system for implementation of LOGO-S; and (3) comprehensive documentation of LOGO-S and the portable LOGO system for use by implementors. Language description provides the syntax and a glossary of LOGO-S. Volume I presents an overview, including the implementation language, the host environment, global data structures of the LOGO machine, a description of the machine, and the LOGO-S environment; Volume II provides program listings for the current working version. Advice to implementors and a bibliography of 45 citations are included. (Author/RAA)
