The design of a COBOL editor and interpreter is explored which uses simple, straightforward algorithms similar to the approach found in programmable calculators. The algorithms are designed to be implemented using the microinstructions of a high-performance bit-slice microprocessor. A possible machine design using a family of microprogrammable four-bit-slice bipolar circuits is outlined.
