Abstract : A Directly Executed Language (DEL) is the interface between the output of a higher level computer language translator and the input to the interpretive process of a computer. New developments in computer technology (especially fast read-write control storage) allow 'soft' computer architectures in which a range of flexible 'machine' or DEL's can be introduced. These DEL's are in many respects unlike conventional instruction sets, expecially in format flexibility and specified operations. (Author)
