The MOHAWK 2400 terminal has been used to make some selected queries of the Multiple Systems Evaluation Program Critical Equipment List file. Programs were written in MOHAWK data language MDL. A modular approach was used, with general-purpose subroutines being written to perform distinct list-processing functions. Descriptions and listings of the routines are given. Other MDL techniques of general utility are described. Since the use of the MOHAWK terminal does not entail any extra expense, running data retrieval programs on the MOHAWK 2400 saves funds spent on larger computers, such as the CDC-6600, which are on a use-rate basis. The modular approach, in addition, allows one to write future programs with queries different from the ones that present programs answer, with minimal added effort.
