The Tandem Application Language, a proprietary variant of Pascal enhanced to accomodate the checkpointing features of the NonStop architecture. Along with BASE24 knowledge this used to be a hot item on your c.v. but nowadays it's more of an albatross. Here's a (meaningless) sample:


Proc Set^Time

BEGIN

INT INT^Time[0:3];
FIXED Time = INT^Time;

Time := 0F;
CALL TIMESTAMP(Int^Time[1]);
CURRENT^MESSAGE ':=' "G008";
@MESSAGE := CURRENT^MESSAGE;

! comments like this

END; ! Set^Time
