Abstract:

The design and implementation of the Basic List-Oriented Information Structures System is described. Manipulation of list structures in an efficient and cogent manner is the system function. The language, which is patterned after Bell Telephone Laboratories L6, is generated from a precedence grammar for rapid syntax analysis. A compiler produces code for a pseudo-machine that is designed to effectively carry out list-oriented functions. Dynamic storage allocation and structure definition are significant execution-time features. The implementation, written in PLI, is for operation under the CPCMS time-sharing system on the IBM 36067.
