Abstract : The Space and Missile Systems Organization of the Air Force directed System Development Corporation to implement the SPL language by producing a compiler. The SPL compiler was built utilizing a syntax-directed compiler building technique. This compiler translates SPL source statements into machine or assembly language code. Two SPL compilers have been built to operate on the IBM 360 and to generate code for the IBM 360 and UNIVAC 1824 computers. Future compilers will be developed to operate on the CDC 6600 and to generate code for the IBM 360, CDC 6600 and UNIVAC 1824. Mark II and IV language subsets are being implemented. (Author)
