Abstract:

The FLEX system consists of merged hardware and software that is optimized towards handling algorithmic operations in an interactive, man-machine dialog. The basic form is that of a hardware implementation of a parametric compiler embedded in an environment that is well-suited for semantically describing and pragmatically executing a large class of languages. The semantic language is called FLEX, includes the compiler-compiler as a string operator and is used as the basic medium for carrying out processes. It is of a higher-level nature and may itself be used for describing many algorithmic processes. The machine itself is designed to be of the desk-top variety and sell at a low price.
