A computer language for reducing activation analysis data

  • M. H. Friedman
  • J. T. Tanner


A program, written in FORTRAN, is described that defines a language for reducing activation analysis data. Communications are effected through commands, and these can be given in almost any order. Consistency checks are done and diagnostic messages are printed automatically to guard against the incorrect use of the commands. Default options on the commands allow instructions to be expressed concisely while providing a capability to specify details for the data reduction process. The program has been implemented on a UNIVAC 1108 computer.
