Considerations for Future Programming Language Standards Activities
1976) Considerations for Future Programming Language Standards Activities. Technical Report CS76014-R, Computer Science, Virginia Tech. (
This paper reviews the current state of programming language standards activities with respect to the anomalies which exist between the various published and proposed standards for FORTRAN, COBOL, PL/I and BASIC. Proposals are made for the inclusion of formalisms within future standards and the extension of the standards to include additional items such as error conditions and documentation.
