The next meeting of the Group will be held on Thursday 19 January 1989 from

10.30 am to 4.00 pm at BCS HQ, 13 Mansfield Street, London. (Please note that

the date was incorrect in the previous set of minutes).

The morning meeting will be normal business including a report from the recent

X3J3 meeting in Boston. The afternoon session is entitled "Fortran pre-

processors - past and future". The future will be described by Graham Barber who

works for EPCL in Edinburgh and who is a user of a Gould Fortran pre-processor

which takes ordinary Fortran and generates code suitable for a Fortran 88

compiler. There will also be a short historical review of pre~processors by

David Muxworthy.

Please bring this notice to the attention of any colleagues likely to be

interested: we particularly welcome newcomers to the Group whether members of

BCS or not.
