An experimental programming language called APLGOL adds structured programming facilities to the existing framework of APL. The conventional semantics of APL is unaltered and only minor changes are incorporated in the syntax. The advantages of the proposed interstatement structuring and control are outlined. Programs designed and written using “structured” programming techniques have been demonstrated to be more readily produced, more reliable, and more easily maintained than unstructured… CONTINUE READING
