00300 Official comment:
00400 Why was NOMAC done as prefix operator instead of fn. call like CVMS.
00500 NOMAC id,
00700 and id ...,
00800 represent the three manifestations of that identifier: name, unevaluated
00900 value, and value; other languages which interpret things dynamically
01000 recognize this trinity (forgive me). I think the syntax should be a bit
01100 more unified. (maybe let me say NOMAC(id) as well, or perhaps CVNAME(id)?
01300 Bitch, bitch, bitch!!

01820 Can't compile from dectapes.
02000 RTRAN,PTRAN run very slowly, couldn't many of the small procedures be
02100 made SIMPLE.
