Abstract

In a previous publication [1], a method was presented for the mapping of a subset of PL/I into PL/R, a hardware language [2]. The subset of PL/I discussed consists of: assignment statements with Boolean and arithmetic operators, if-then-else statements and DO statements. With the PL/I program transcribed into PL/R, the compiler RTRAN is used to translate it into a regular logic design RLD [3].
