Abstract : The Conversational Modeling Language (CML) is a collection of computer programs, parameter interfaces, and linkage conventions which implement a set of commands and statements considered to be useful for constructing systems and models on a computer. The following list of design objectives characterize the dimensions along with CML is intended to represent an improvement over previously available modeling languages. CML offers linguistic extensibility as well as run-time programming and interaction within a general purpose algorithmic simulation language, in order to provide economical and flexible model building, experimentation, and alteration capabilities. CML's implementation offers a programming environment for efficient subsystem construction and straightforward language extension. (Modified author abstract)
