Abstract:

With INFOL, selected pieces of information are extracted from a file and presented to the user quickly and conveniently, in their original form. The INFOL language--a subset of English--was designed to be easy to learn by those without a programming background or a knowledge of computers. The field concept, implying limited word size, has been eliminated in INFOL the user need not be concerned about how many characters to assign any piece of information--all information may be of variable length. The output may be a printed report or it may be a punched deck to be used as input for another computer application. Author
