Abstract : FORTAB is a decision table language based on the FORTRAN scientific computing language. Programs written in the combined FORTAB and FORTRAN languages can be compiled by a FORTAB pre-processor program which was constructed for the IBM 7090 computer. Initial experiments conducted using the FORTAB language indicate that a decision table language added to a scientific computing language results in a powerful combination of programming tools.
