Abstract:

The document presents the results of an investigation of design and documentation techniques used in computer programming in order to develop recommendations and guidelines for easing the transfer of computer programs written for one computing environment to another. The first part of the study is concerned with a general transferability analysis and techniques to be used independent of any particular programming language. Emphasis is placed on the importance of transferability considerations during design and coding of the problem program. The second section of the study deals with higher level and assemblymacro languages. Specific suggestions for improvement of FORTRAN, JOVIAL, and COBOL program design are included. Programming, assembly languages, Cobol, fortran, jovial programming language, computer program transferability.
