Abstract : The document describes in detail the grammer and syntax of the user language employed in the operation of the Machine Independent Data Management System (MIDMS). It describes totally the use of each of the systems major modules and capabilities: File Structuring, File Maintenance, Retreival, Output, and Librarian. The user language itself is COBOL-like in nature, designed with the nonprogrammer user in mind. Its use is strictly in the batch environment as there are no interactive features in the language itself. The language as described in this document is applicable to the operation of MIDMS on both the IBM 360 and Honeywell G-635/6000 series computers. (Author)
