Overview

This is a very small page that covers other interesting software that is linked with ML/I in some way.

ALGEBRA

ALGEBRA is a package for students and research workers in Boolean algebra and multi-valued logics.

ALGEBRA is implemented via the LOWL language, much in the way that ML/I was. At the moment, what is available here is some documentation and the LOWL source code.

User manual for Algebra
ALGEBRA User Manual (1970)
Implementation manual for ALGEBRA
ALGEBRA Implementation Manual
ALGEBRA source code
Here is the ALGEBRA source code. To implement ALGEBRA, one also needs the LOWL test program (LOWLTEST) and its own implementation manual. Details of these can be found in How ML/I is implemented.

SCAN

SCAN is a simple conversational language that resembles BASIC. It can be thought of functionally as a very detuned version of ML/I. It was designed as a way to introduce non-technical students to the use of computers in their field, and was used to scan documents.

SCAN is implemented via the LOWL language, much in the way that ML/I was. At the moment, what is available here is an academic paper, some documentation, and the source code.

UNRAVEL

UNRAVEL is a simple BASIC-like language. It is intended for the examination of computer memory, either live or in the form of binary dumps. It allows easy interpretation of data structures, etc.

UNRAVEL is implemented via the LOWL language, much in the way that ML/I was. At the moment, what is available here is an academic paper, some documentation, and the source code.
