Abstract:

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. This volume of the report contains detailed analyses of the strengths and weaknesses of language features found in a wide variety of programming languages. Although not all features are analyzed with equal thoroughness and although certain completeness and consistency checks remain to be done, the analyses begin to capture what has been learned about the merits and deficiencies of existing language features. This information can be used to help guide the selection or design of a language for programming tactical or other kinds of systems.
