Abstract : An operational semantic model HGL (Hierarchical Graph Language) for programming languages is defined. HGL is a hierarchical system which permits a relatively modular breakup of the language structures and a variety of levels of description within the given modules. As an illustration, the programming language SIMPL-X is modeled in HGL. Special emphasis is placed on the control structure required for the language. (Author)
