Abstract : A method is described for the introduction into the Fortran 63 language of a special operator for differentiation which would be executed when encountered during compilation. The original expression would be extracted from the Fortran equation and replaced by its symbolic derivative; the translation process would then proceed in the normal manner. A model algebraic translator, written in Fortran 63, is described and test results are presented. (Author)
