Abstract : A description of the computer programming language SIMPLR is given. SIMPLR is the member of the SIMPL family of structured programming languages intended for use with numerical computations such as those which arise in connection with the solution of scientific and engineering problems. An example is given showing an implementation in SIMPLR of an algorithm for the solution of sparse matrix problems using an arcgraph data structure. Comparisons with the same algorithm coded in FORTRAN show that the nonoptimizing SIMPLR compiler produces code which is ten to twenty percent faster than that produced by the optimizing FORTRAN compiler.
