Describes the design of a programming language suitable for writing portable, machine independent programs. Based on Fortran, and implemented at the lowest level by means of subprograms, this language (PFortran) provides features which allow programs to be designed so as to be rather insensitive to computer architecture (byte versus word addressable) or to main memory size.
