POP was named for the pop-out features it provided to its users. The language was highly extensible and allowed users to define programs as much as desired, then add the required extension functions as needed. For example, it could have a single function that returned all of the cells in a grid, or a “list” function that returned a list of cells from a grid. Pop-2 was a simple programming language in its day but one of the best and most flexible on the market today.
POP was written to be highly portable. The language was able to run on many different computer systems, as well as being used on the BBC Micro and PDP-11. Since the language was so versatile, programs written for one system could run directly on another. Because of this versatility, POP was a very popular language for many academic researchers, who used it extensively in their research.
POP was not originally intended as a general-purpose language. It was primarily designed to be used in teaching. Because the language was extensible and so flexible, it made it easy to add modules to the language and to extend the program in ways that were impossible for older languages like LISP and ALGol. The language was not designed to be easy to learn, although it has been updated over the years to become a very simple, easy-to-use language.
POP was initially developed for the AT&T PDP/80 microprocessor. The language was later ported to the Atari ST, Amstrad CPC, IBM-PC, and many other early systems. Many early users also made it available to the public, for free. This made it possible for people from around the world to use the language, as it was available in a free version, and a commercial version. POP’s popularity continued to grow, especially among students, and especially those wanting to learn to program for research purposes.
POP is very good for beginners. The syntax is very simple, but it is not a “black box.” If you learn the basic rules, the language is easy to understand.
POP is the language most often used for teaching programming. It was developed with a high degree of academic rigor, which means that it is easy for students to understand and learn.
POP was also developed as a way for researchers to learn more about the LISP programming language, which was very popular in the 1970s and beyond. POP’s popularity continued to grow in the 1980s, due to the release of the third edition, POP3, which added an extensible syntax as well. This version of POP is still highly popular among academics.
POP was also released as an interpreter for the VB language (a Java-like language) on Macs. This allows people to compile programs written in LISP or C into a simple, portable form that runs in Windows. This makes POP a very flexible language for programmers. It was used extensively for teaching, and it also became very popular in some academic circles, because it is so easy to learn. It can be easily modified to make programs that run on many different platforms.
POP was also designed for the computer industry, because it can be used for interactive terminals. The terminal devices such as ATMs (atmoshp, lxp, etc.) use POP as their programming language, and so do various educational software, such as TextWorks and similar products.
POP was also used extensively in the music industry for creating music titles, including the songwriter’s keyboard software. In order to create music, programmers would use the standard LISP or C syntax for creating a simple melody, which then can be translated into a series of commands for producing a musical piece.
POP has a long history, but it has been modified a lot since its conception. As its popularity has grown, so has the popularity of LISP and its cousin, C++, as well as the popularity of the C-based language C.NET. The next time you are looking for a language to teach your students, POP should be at the top of your list.
