Abstract:

The report describes an experimental multi-user utility calculator system similar to PIL, BASIC, and FOCAL, but implemented as a subsystem in RAMP, a multiprogramming system described elsewhere. The features of this system include text editing, statement interpretation, and expression evaluation as in orther systems cited. In addition, this system provides the capability of multitasking at the source language level. Thus each user can specify a program structure consisting of a number of asynchronous tasks which interact with each other in interesting ways. Author
