Abstract:

The Logic Theory Machine called LT, see P-951 represents a class of non-numerical problems with quite different programming requirements than either normal arithmetic calculations or business data processing. The storage requirements are extremely variable, with the results of many computations being changed in the memory structure. The program itself is a large, complicated hierarchy of subroutines. For LT an intermediate language interpretive pseudo code was written for the RAND JOHNNIAC. The paper first characterizes the programming problems involved and then illustrates solutions to them by describing the language. Author
