Abstract : A software package for information retrieval purposes is presented. The core of this package is a new language called Information Search Language (ISL) which was developed to facilitate the manipulation of real character strings in an interactive environment. After a discussion of the ISL language and some of its characteristics, two application programs, REQUEST and RECALL are then described to illustrate the many attractive features of the software.
