Abstract : The purpose of the paper is to establish the basis for certain extensions to PL/1 in order to make that language more comfortable and effective for structured programming. An initial subset of these extensions is defined, although a full definition must await further work--including, one would hope, a practical implementation and some experience with the result. Possibly, a preprocessor will be devised to generate 'ordinary' PL/1 code from extended--PL/1 code. (Author)
