THE JOVIAL MANUAL. PART 3. THE JOVIAL PRIMER
SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT CORP SANTA MONICA CA SANTA MONICA United States
Pagination or Media Count:
A text on JOVIAL programming, with many examples and exercises, is given. The treatment is such that an experienced programmer should have little trouble in comprehending the subject matter, although a beginner might require some additional tutoring. Answers to the exercises in the Primer will be found in Part 4, Supplement to the JOVIAL Manual. Although the Primer contains all of the information found in Part 2, the Grammar and Lexicon, it is not meant to supersede that document, since the organization of material in the two documents differs considerably. The Primer is organized so that, in general, simple topics re presented first, more difficult and less useful topics later. The Grammar, on the other hand, obeys the heirarchical structure of the language and is organized for reference. As an aid to legibility in the examples, lower case as well as upper case letters will be used though, of course, JOVIAL itself contains no such distinction. Lower case letters will be used within comments and to expand the abbreviations that the language employs.
