Floyd - Evans language(ID:5533/flo015)

Symbolic manipulation language 

alternate simple view
Country: United States
Designed 1960
Genus: Grammar and Syntax-oriented
Sammet category: String and List Processing

Symbolic language system, attempting to overcome the limitations of what Floyd called "algebraic command languages" (then ALGOL, IT, FORTRAN, UNICODE) and examine a more direct approach to symbolic manipulation.

Floyd (1961) is an important and much cited paper.
