Abstract The user public wants standardization and reliable identification of programming languages and related services. One way of achieving these goals is illustrated by the methods adopted for TRAC T-64 interactive language, and its related family of languages. Oppressive rigidity usually associated with standardization is avoided by a new accommodation technique accessible to the user to allow local variations within the language. Explicit standardization of the language is undertaken at the organizational source of the language. Use of the organizational trademark (TRAC) on the published standards, and services relying upon them, provides a reliable public identification. These methods can be useful applied to other programming languages and computer services.
