Abstract:

A threaded code interpretive compiler called CONVERS 3.3 is presented. This language is intended for use in laboratory instrument control and data acquisition applications. Discussed are the philosophy behind the development of this language, the internal operation of the interpreter and the compiler, and the advantages this language offers over other programming languages in its intended applications. CONVERS is compared and contrasted to BASIC interpreters, FORTRAN compilers, and particularly to typical FORTH interpretive compilers. Programming examples and execution time benchmarks for code written in BASIC, FORTH, FORTRAN, and CONVERS are presented. Author
