Abstract:

This report is an introduction to program design languages PDLs. A definition is given, and general functions of PDLs are discussed. A set of characteristics is defined to 1 indicate types of design information representable in PDLs and 2 to provide a framework for comparing various PDLs. Each PDL reviewed in a brief survey is discussed within the framework of these characteristics. The set of characteristics set forth when expanded, curtailed, or amended according to special needs may constitute the specification for a PDL desirable for a particular class of application.
