G/PL/I: Extending PL/I for Graph Processing

  • C. Saraiva dos Santos
  • A. L. Furtado


G/PL/I extends PL/I to handle both directed and undirected graphs, which may be multigraphs. An arbitrary number of attribute-value pairs can be associated with the graph itself and with its nodes and edges. Special kinds of sets together with set-theoretic operations are provided. The implementation uses preprocessing. It consists of a supervisor and modules for several extensions to PL/I, G/PL/I being one of them.
