Title: Introduction to Praxis

Abstract

Praxis is the practice of the programming art, science, and skill. It is a high-order language designed for the efficient programming of control and systems applications. It is a comprehensive, strongly typed, block-structured language in the tradition of Pascal, with much of the power of the Mesa and Ada languages. It supports the development of systems composed of separately compiled modules, user-defined data types, exception handling, detailed control mechanisms, and encapsulated data and routines. Direct access to machine facilities, efficient bit manipulation, and interlocked critical regions are provided within Praxis.
