Abstract:

List processing systems should be designed to facilitate production of large programs to manipulate large complex symbolic data stores. The paper presents an overview of a number of system features which the author feels are important to improve the productivity of programmers working in such domains. A systems view is taken, rather than focusing just on language features, since algorithms not only must be coded in a language form, but debugged, modified, made efficient and run on data. Because of this general framework, the requirements specified are applicable to the design of advanced programming systems for a wide range of applications.
