Abstract : The design and implementation of the Basic List-Oriented Information Structures System is described. Manipulation of list structures in an efficient and cogent manner is the system function. The language, which is patterned after Bell Telephone Laboratories' L6, is generated from a precedence grammar for rapid syntax analysis. A compiler produces code for a pseudo-machine that is designed to effectively carry out list-oriented functions. Dynamic storage allocation and structure definition are significant execution-time features. The implementation, written in PL/I, is for operation under the CP/CMS time-sharing system on the IBM 360/67. (Author)
