A language ABAL (Auburn Boolean Algebra Language) is described in this paper that permits machine representation and manipulation of Boolean functions. Functions may be specified in algebraic form or as lists of minterms or maxterms. Types of operations available in the language include functional form changes, simplification rules, prime implicant or prime implicate generation, functional minimization, functional combinations using Boolean operators, and truth table generation. ABAL is written in Basic-Plus for execution on a DEC PDP 11/40 RSTS/E System.
