language 1. An early interpreted algebraic language for
the Bendix G15 by Richard V. Andree of the University ofOklahoma. ALPS is said to have preceded and influenced
development of BASIC.
Dale Peters reports that in the summer
of 1966 he attended the second year of an NSF-sponsored
summer institute in mathematics and computing at the
University of Oklahoma. Richard Andree taught the computing
class which mostly used the language GO-GO which was later
renamed ALPS. Andree, Harold Wiebe, Ralph Howenstein, and
another grad student were changing the language frequently
during the class, which was occasionally a little
disorienting. Dale believes it was used in the previous
summer as well and that it was about this time that Kemeny
(one of the designers of BASIC) saw it during a visit.
2. A parallel logic language.
