In August 1982 we observed great inconvenience in the simple cycle of changing source code and testing that code. We call this activity the development cycle. We will gather ideas here for a solution of this problem. We use "user" here to refer to the application developer.

My ideas are predicated on the idea that all but trivial objects are constructed by user supplied programs. Where an OS programmer would write a half page of JCL we anticipate a half page of PL/I.
