Abstract : A general programming facility is proposed for communication with the interactive command languages of time-sharing systems in an attempt to overcome some of the current limitations of data exchange between man and machine. Commands may be constructed in an arbitrary way in a string processing language and then processed as if typed to a console by a user. The output resulting from the sent commands may be dissected and examined to determine subsequent action. A set of functions to accomplish the above which could be embedded into any string processing language is suggested, and necessary information pertinent to implementation of the facility on existing time-sharing systems is given.
