Abstract:

For many years the only programming languages available were machine languages and languages in the class with FORTRAN. LISP and the list processing languages then came on the scene with several new and powerful capabilities. With the new capabilities, came a new syntax that, although powerful and flexible, is difficult for the novice to master. SLAMS is an attempt to combine the simpler syntax of the FORTRAN class languages, in particular, BASIC with some of the capabilities of the list processing languages. This paper gives a broad description of the use of SLAMS along with some of the examples that contributed to its design. The current, experimental, implementation on the Dartmouth GE-635 Time-Sharing System is also described. Author
