Abstract : The document describes the BLISS implementation language as written for the PDP-10. BLISS is a language specifically designed for use as a tool in implementing large software programs. Special attention is given in the language design to the requirements of the systems programming task, such as: space and time efficiency, the representation of data structures, the lack of run-time support facilities, flexible control structures, modularization, and parameterization of programs.
