Abstract This paper describes a high-level, PASCAL-based language, which is easily implementable on minicomputers with limited amounts of memory. The added features include a machine and operating system—independent formalism for describing file structures, and allow either compile time or run-time specification of the actual-formal file correspondence. A similar formalism for handling program overlays is described. These constructs are implemented in a manner consistent with the underlying language PASCAL, and allow one to easily write operating systems components.
