Language for the On-Line Investigation and Transformation of Abstractions.

F Blackwell, 1967, TRW for Rome Aircraft Base (NY)

Extension of Culler-Fried STL system for symbolic mathematics by the addition of low-level list processing facilities.

As it was a CFS, it had simple push-button assignments for many operations, including

Had a special memory store, the Symbol Accumulator (SA)

DLIST - list symbols
DSYM - create a symbol
LS - load a symbol into SA
SSB - store symbol before
SSA - Store symbol after
ES - erase symbol
CON - concatentate symbols
SI - set index
II - increment index

CFS remained simple, but the user could (and did) develop complicated systems with it.
