Pagination or Media Count:
The two volumes of this report present a comprehensive survey and analysis of high level programming language features, together with a selection of features needed to program Army tactical computer-based systems. The report is devoted mainly to detailed analyses of the strengths and weaknesses of language features supported by a wide variety of general purpose languages. This volume of the report describes the approach taken to this study, and in an Appendix, provides an index to the detailed feature analyses contained in Volume 2. Two other Appendices contain surveys of language requirements for process handling and inputoutput. A fourth Appendix documents the need for certain application-dependent language features, based on a study of actual tactical system specifications and programs.
