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.

A Transportable Programming Language (TPL) System. I. overview
TLDR
It is demonstrated that theSuperset Method, in which the Hypothetical Parent of the HLL acts as the intermediate language between the dialects of a HLL, leads to a fully transportable High-Level Language—the HPHLL—whose only parameters are: the amount of memory available; and the maximum module size exclusive of arrays.
