Abstract : This report treats the problem of transferring programs from one operating environment to another with the expenditure of a small fraction of the initial programming development time and cost. Programs considered range from quite small ones, such as routines for evaluating arctangents, to large and complex systems, such as compilers, data management systems, or command and control systems. The initial and final environments may be slightly or highly dissimilar with respect to machines, machine configuration, or operating systems and languages used. (Author)
