Abstract : This report contains a tutorial and the final definitive description of NELIAC-N (the version of the NELIAC language implemented on the NAREC by means of the NELIAC-N compiler), which furnished the transition vehicle between the NAREC and the CDC 3870 being installed at NRL. NELIAC is a problem-oriented, machine-independent programming language which enables programmers, scientists, and engineers to write their programs in a mathematical language rather than requiring an actual machine language or an assembly language. NELIAC thus minimizes the knowledge of the actual computer required by the programmer, maximizes the readability of the programs themselves, and provides carry-over value of programs from one computer to another.
