ACM SIGPLAN Article About Structured Programming in FORTRAN
Updated:2018-02-26 07:10 by
In February 1975 I published an article in ACM SIGPLAN about a Structured FOTRAN Translator named STRFORM which was distributed through the SHARE Program Library at the University of Tennessee. The program was written in structured FORTRAN and bootstrapped using IBM mainframe assembler version of the FORTRAN translator also distributed via the SHARE library. The Translator implemented the basic structured programming statements including IF, ELSE, ELSEIF, END-IF, DO WHILE, END-DO, PERFORM, PENTRY, and PEXIT. These statements enable writing any complex program without using GO TO statements as advocated by Dykstra to make programs more readable: https://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=1243380 STRFORT was used for coding logic in the Florida Power Corporate model. STRFORT was adopted as the corporate standard by the Canadian Postal System. In 1977 FORTRAN 77 was released which included some of these structured programming constructs.
ACM SIGSMALL Article About PC370 Emulation on a microcompute
Updated:2018-02-25 22:14 by
In August 1985 I published an article in ACM SIGSMALL about emulating the IBM 370 mainframe using the Intel 8086 microcomputer. The article explained how the 8 bit byte memory and register operations made emulating the mainframe relatively efficient.
MF370 Assembler Ad in Computer World
Updated:2018-02-25 20:37 by
In 1989 I licensed PC370 to both Pansophic Systems (Now Computer Associates) and Micro Focus. Pansophic used it in their TELON product to support mainframe assembler. Micro Focus used it in their Workbench product to support mainframe assembler. Micro Focus ran this add in Computerworld at the time, and Larry Simmons the project manager had it framed and sent to me, and I still have it on my office wall.
