Abstract:

The document describes the BLISS implementation language as written for the PDP-10. BLISS is a language specifically designed for use as a tool in implementing large software programs. Special attention is given in the language design to the requirements of the systems programming task, such as space and time efficiency, the representation of data structures, the lack of run-time support facilities, flexible control structures, modularization, and parameterization of programs.
