Abstract:

Automatic programming is defined as the process of utilizing a computer program to accept sophisticated procedural descriptions as data in order to produce machine executable sequences of instructions as answers. The translation, memory allocation and diagnostics functions of automatic programming compose an interface between the computing system and the user. The library of subroutines available through automatic programming acts as an extension of the computing system. Ability to accept a variety of programming languages, data structures and subroutines provides flexibility to the computing system. Techniques of automatic programming will change while the functional relationship to the computing system will remain the same. Author
