Abstract : The push button telephone has been employed in many systems as a computer terminal with a very restricted capability and in at least one instance as a computer terminal for a general purpose programming language. The thesis discusses the input, output, coding, and decoding problems when considering a general purpose programming language for use with a push button telephone. Included is a general discussion of a system that would use a syntactic analysis and the context of a programming language to produce a code for use with a push button telephone. The output from this analysis would be used to build a table-driven translator to decode the language. An example of such a system is included. (Author)
