Abstract:

The PALL program Prints Address Lists and Labels has been in use since early 1963 to produce the various pieces of paper--distribution lists, receipts, mailing labels, and order forms--required in the distribution of RAND publications. It maintains a master file of some 850 organizations approved to receive various categories of RAND reports. In design and operation, the program resembles a two-pass assembler and makes extensive use of modern string-handling, pointer, and dictionary techniques. Section I of the Memorandum is a brief discussion of the origin, operation, and advantages of PALL. Section II contains the instructions for users of the program Section III, the instructions for operators. Section IV describes the programs operation, step by step, and Section V discusses its formats. Author
