Abstract : The ability to generate structured High Order Language (HOL) code for modern computers is an almost universally accepted requirement. Raytheon, one of the three Army Military Computer Family (MCF) contractors, has responded to this requirement by developing tools allowing the generation of code for MCF in PASCAL. The major features of PASCAL are available to the user including the intermixing of PASCAL and NEBULA modules. This paper describes the general structure of the PASCAL tool and provides examples of how PASCAL has been effectively employed on the Computer Control Panel of the Raytheon MCF Advanced Development Model. Measures of MCF instruction set code generation are presented. Experience to date indicates that PAS/NEB provides an effective HOL tool for programmers while awaiting the availability of MCF ADA.
