Concept Search - What can I type?
For a concept search, you can enter phrases, sentences, or full paragraphs in English. For example, copy and paste the abstract of a patent application or paragraphs from an article.
Concept search eliminates the need for complex Boolean syntax to inform retrieval. Our Semantic Gist engine uses advanced cognitive semantic analysis to extract the meaning of data. This reduces the chances of missing valuable information, that may result from traditional keyword searching.

Method for Linking Compiled Code With APL
The following description will be specific to MVS (multiple virtual storage).
The technique, however, is of general applicability.
The method is incorporated into a "general purpose" auxiliary processor
(GPAP). The process begins when APL initializes a variable with a character
string which consists of a four-character command, possibly concatenated with
the name of an entry point (module name or alias name), and extends an offer to
GPAP to share that variable.
When the offer is received by GPAP, the contents are examined for correct
syntax, If the command is "ARGS", then the entry point determines the location
of the load module. The results are passed to the LOAD SVC macro which
brings the load module into virtual storage. Thereafter, GPAP calls the loaded
program whenever the shared variable is assigned a value by APL. The value
assigned to the shared variable by APL, in this case, should be a character string
containing the names of the APL variables to be passed as arguments to the
compiled cade. The arguments are located in the workspace, and the loaded
program is invoked via standard OS linkage.
If the initial value of the shared variable is 'EXAM', then GPAP expects
subsequent assignments of the shared variable to be the name of a variable in
the APL workspace. After the specified variable is located, its value is printed at
the terminal in hexadecimal.
