Design and implementation of a simple systems language for microcomputers Lee, Peter C.


The problems of software development for microcomputers are studied through the design and implementation of a simple systems language, called E. E is a descendant of the BCPL family of systems programming languages. Differences between E and its predecessors arise from the design of E as a minimal language, and from the objective of enabling interactive tracing of E programs. A development system for E has been constructed which may operate in a microcomputer with 16K bytes of memory. As well, E programs may be developed using a cross compiler which runs on a large computer system.
