Strings and the sequence abstraction in Pascal
journal contributionposted on 2023-05-25, 22:20 authored by Sale, AHJ
This paper examines the sequence abstraction known in Pascal as the 'file', and shows how sequences of charcters ('strings' on the SNOBOL sense) may be cleanly fitted into Pascal-like languages. The specific problems of providing the suggested facilities as an experimental extension to Pascal are examined.
