Abstract: This program is a poor man's PDL (Program Design
Language). It does not provide sophisticated
cross-referencing or code generation, but does nicely
format input module descriptions and produce a symbol
table. It also provides a great deal of logic error
checking and include files. It is very useful when you
need some way to document designs and to put them in
writing so that you can hack on them. Program design
language (PDL) is a tool used by system and program
designers to document the data structures, control
logic, and module hierarchy by a system, subsystem,
program or subroutine.
The language is input using an editor, processed by a
PDL program to find errors and produce a nicely
formatted listing, and the PDL then incorporated into
the source code as comments. Many different types of
PDLs and PDL processors have been used around the
industry for several years.
