Hardware Algorithms for Nonnumeric Computation

  title={Hardware Algorithms for Nonnumeric Computation},
  author={Amar Mukhopadhyay},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Computers},
This paper is concerned with the design of hardware algorithms for nonnumeric computation. The subset of nonnumeric operations considered is derived from string processing languages such as Snobol or high-level database languages used in database management architectures. Being uniformly structured, the hardware could be implemented using LSI technology yielding an estimated pattern matching rate of about 100 million characters/s. The proposed nonnumeric processor will find applications in the… CONTINUE READING
