Abstract: The purpose of MPL is to provide a language for writing mathematical programming algorithms that will be easier to write, to read, and to modify than those written in currently available computer languages. It is believed that the writing, testing, and modification of codes for solving large-scale linear programs will be a less formidable undertaking once MPL becomes available. It is hoped that by the Fall of 1968, work on a compiler for MPL will be well underway.
