This paper presents a computer language translator which allows the IBM FORTRAN G (or higher level) user to solve directly problems in which the variables may be n-tuples and/or the FORTRAN arithmetic and relational operations may be defined by the user. The translator, called the NSFORT (for Nonstandard FORTRAN) translator, will (1) decompose all expressions to a series of binary arithmetic operations, relational operations, or user defined functions; (2) generate CALL statements to user supplied subprograms to perform the above operations; and (3) produce a new source program that is in every respect acceptable to the FORTRAN compiler. While using the NSFORT translator the user has virtually unrestricted use of FORTRAN. The translator's applications include n-precision arithmetic, vector and matrix operations , numerically evaluated analytic derivatives, interval arithmetic, and others. The paper describes completely the use and operation of the translator, provides examples, indicates applications, and discusses,, programming techniques.
