    There is, to my knowledge, only one system presently in existence, namely CL-1I [3], that integrates all of the service functions 1 through (i info a single system. At the core of CL-1 is a general-purpose operator program that will run arbitrary programs. CL-1 includes a library of special service programs, as defined above, including an assembler and an algebraic compiler (as well as a corrector, etc.), which are operable by the general operator program [4].

Leonard, "CL-I, an environment for a compiler" view details Abstract: A flexible, large-scale programming system to facilitate the solution of information-processing problems and to provide intercommunication between programs and/or programmers has been developed and realized on the IBM 709/7090 computer.
    The system is based on a master file eoncept and has provisions for accepting, storing, and retrieving both deseriptions and instances of large and complex data sets, as well as algorithms defined in these data sets. Both data and algorithms may be expressed in a family of command and descriptive languages.
    The concept of distinct data descriptions and the content and use of such descriptions are discussed in some detail.
