Abstract : This is the third report of an investigation on the formal characteristics and feasibility of the potential and utilization of push-down type computer memories. List processing language development in this study concerns the refinement of the SPRINT language, an experimental, hopefully useful, and simple list processing language. Work has continued on the Growing Machine, a context-free definitional structure, and its development is considered to be a test-bed for list-processing development. Progress has been made in the following areas: (1) New Software, (2) Applications of List Memories, and (3) Applications of SPRINT and the Growing Machine.
