Abstract : FORAST is a procedure oriented programming language designed for use on the ORDVAC and BRLESC computers at BRL. Although it was designed for professional programmers, FORAST contains sufficient simple concepts to make it usable by a novice or journeyman. It permits the use of arithmetic formulas, some English word statements, and each computer accepts its own symbolic or absolute machine language. The latter feature permits the professional programmer to use the full power of each computer.
