Abstract : The manual describes the CAL language and the operating features of the CAL system. It is not a primer but a reference manual. CAL is a conversational algebraic language based on the Joss system developed by Shaw at the Rand Corporation. It is designed to facilitate the computer solution of small and medium-sized numerical problems. Since it is very much slower in execution than, say, the code produced by a Fortran compiler, it is not suitable for problems requiring a large amount of computation. It does provide nearly fool-proof operation, complete error-checking and a very powerful and convenient language. (Author)
