AMBITL is a list-processing programming system. It integrates the general use of recursive functions with a pattern-matching style of programming. Two-dimensional directed-graph diagrams are used to represent the data, and similar diagrams appear throughout the program as the patterns of rules. The system has a simple core, but extends out to accomodate the always complicated requirements of input-output, traps and interrupts, and storage management it is a large system. The PDP-10 implementation of AMBITL is described in this paper.
