Abstract : In its simplest form, the conditional command processor, (CCP) may be used to retrieve characters from a user supplied file and send them to a pseudo teletype. The pseudo teletype will react to these characters the same way a teletype connected to the system would react in all cases. It is possible to save the output generated by the pseudo teletype and examine it with internally coded CCP functions. A CCP program, therefore, can cause a user program to execute and then examine the resulting output. Conditional statements in CCP will allow appropriate action to take place based on the output. CCP may be viewed as a macro processor in that arguments can be supplied when a CCP program is to be run. These arguments may be referred to within the program. CCP takes the form of an algol-like language, including recursive, user-defined functions with substitutable arguments. Additional features are two character-send functions and several other internally coded functions. (Author)
