An examination is made of the fundamental needs of a language to be used for expressing procedures for all types of computer applications. An outline is given of the commands needed for doing calculations, controlling the sequence of steps, obtaining the information required, and presenting the results in the desired format. Further, the particulars that must be provided about data and results are indicated. The main features of the CLEO language are described in an Appendix.
