The Decision Module Compiler
Management Information Services - Compilers (Computer programs) - 295 pages
The report serves both as a technical history of the development of the Decision Module Compiler (DMC) concepts and a detailed description of the DMC's inner workings. Briefly stated, the goal consisted in devising a language for decision making and data movement functions coupled with an effective compiler which would produce an insert or module capable of executing complex data processing tasks. The module was to be free of any input-output mechanism, per se, but was to contain a complete communications interface for use with a separate input-output vehicle. The DMC is an object time compiler whose end product is a complete running program. The DMC presupposes the presence of a special or general purpose input-output (I/O) vehicle which responds to external stimuli, in the form of bit-switch settings, by performing selected I/O functions. The DMC generates, and adds to this vehicle, instructions, constants, areas, switches, and a communications interface. During execution of the final program, control shuttles back and forth between the instructions in the I/O vehicle and the instructions generated by the DMC. (Author).
