The programming language PASCAL-XSC (PASCAL eXtension forScientific Computation) significantly simplifies programmingin the area of scientific and technical computing.PASCAL-XSC provides a large number of predefined data typeswith arithmetic operators and predefined functions ofhighestaccuracy for real and complex numbers, for real andcomplex intervals, and for the corresponding vectors andmatrices. Thus PASCAL-XSC makes the computer more powerfulconcerning the arithmetic. Through an implementation in C,compilers for PASCAL-XSC are available for a large varietyof computers such as personal computers, workstations,mainframes, and supercomputers. PASCAL-XSC provides a moduleconcept, an operator concept, functions and operators withgeneral result type, overloading of functions, procedures,and operators, dynamic arrays, access to subarrays, roundingcontrol by the user, and accurate evaluation of expressions.The language is particularly suited for the development ofnumerical algorithms that deliver highly accurate andautomatically verified results. A number of problem-solvingroutines with automatic resultverification have alreadybeen implemented. PASCAL-XSC contains Standard PASCAL. It isimmediately usable by PASCAL programmers. PASCAL-XSC is easyto learn and ideal for programming education. The book canbe used as a textbook for lectures on computer programming.It contains a major chapter with sample programs, exercises,and solutions. A complete set of syntax diagrams, detailedtables, and indices complete the book.
