for Problem Analysis

from Ebelling 1969
"The original version of the language was developed when the senior author discovered he was doing virtually the same initializing, sampling, bookkeeping, and outputtlng on several of the problems he was solving by Monte Carlo methods on the time-shared computer. This first version was a single program which incorporated the common needs of various problems while allowing the underlying structure to be tailored to an individual problem. It was distributed widely in the General Electric Company, and still provides the basis in several internal courses for instruction in probabilistlc modeling and simulation. "
