for Autocode List-Processor

List-processing extension of Mercury Autocode.

from Cooper 1962 "The scheme is designed in the form of eleven instructions added to the existing Autocode Language (Brooker, 1958) so that Autocode instructions may be intermingled with these new symbol-manipulating instructions. Only a desirable minimum of new instructions is included, but subroutines to perform more complicated list manoeuvres, such as copying tree structures or joining lists, may easily be built up from these. As one of the authors (D. C. C.) has already produced an IPL interpreter for Mercury it is probable that the language is biased in this direction rather than in the direction of other symbol-manipulation languages."
