Work in Automatic Programming focusses on the problem of how to make the computer more accessible to the non-programmer. It involves both the design of interfaces and the development of algorithms to support those interfaces. It is also concerned with how to write programs which can be manipulated: changed, subsetted, or composed. This paper outlines one facit of the work in Automatic Programming at the IBM Research Center, Yorktown Heights, New York.
