Extension of AED

first table-driven language-definition system

From Ross CAD Timeline:

"AEDJR was enhanced with comment, quotation, and attribute features for user-defined "execute-procedure" special controls of compiler front and back ends. In order to address the wide range of differences between commercial-computer hardware and Operating System details, most modular components of the main phases of AED-Approach system-generation and -building systems were sprinkled with interface "joints" (before and after a major process function or phase) where special "execute procedures" could be inserted to specialize the general architecture (so it would WORK!). This principle was exploited in AED's subroutine-calling code-generation, where Enter and Exit break-outs allowed AED's Debugger to trace, control, and report during testing - while a simple re-compile with the Declarations for those functions omitted, yielded the final, production code.
