Abstract : The report discusses a test language to be used to describe test procedures and to program automatic test equipment. Part 1 of this report is a Primer in which the language is fully described. In part 2, Multiple Choice Decision Tables, form a basic part of the test language, are described, and a hypothetical example is given to illustrate the supporting role of a decision table processor. Part 3 covers the overall problem of software requirements for automatic testing and a suggested approach to its solution. (Author)
