Abstract:

SLIP, an acronym for Symmetric List Processor, is a list processing system which carries a forward and backward link as well as a datum. It is symmetric in the sense that lists do not have a preferred orientation operations which can be carried out on the top of a list can be as easily carried out on the bottom of the list. List processing languages are formal mathematical languages and have been used in symbolic processing in calculus, circuit theory, mathematical logic, artificial intelligence, and numerous other applications.
