Abstract : The Mobile Programming System was developed to provide the capability of moving programs from one computing machine to another with a minimum of difficulty. This paper is an initial study of the efficiencies involved in the development of a processor for a programming language via the system. To this end, a language processor was implemented through the system on a particular machine (IBM 360 Mod 67), and comparisons made with the same language processor implemented directly on the same machine. Although the results of this paper are taken from this specific case, they give an indication of the relative efficiencies that could be expected from other processors implemented in a similar way. A significant side benefit of the study is a simplified implementation process for the SNOBOL4 programming language. (Author)
