Abstract : This document contains the functional description and system/subsystem specifications for a JOVIAL J73/Ada translator, and guidelines for J73 programmers who anticipate their programs will be converted to Ada at a later date. The functional description specifies the maximum JOVIAL J73 subset that can be converted to Ada. Techniques for the optimum automatic translation of the source code are specified. The J73 constructs that cannot be automatically translated are identified. The system/subsystem specification provides a more detailed breakdown of the proposed translator.
