Abstract: STAGE2 is a general purpose macro processor designed by
W. M. Waite, and may be used as a front end to other languages such as
SABR, FORTRAN and BASIC. Device independent I/O, and access to
several files allows for flexible processing and multiple passes within the
macro processor. Macro calls are recognized by a pattern matching
scheme that allows for flexible syntax in macro definition. The special
characters controlling the macro processor may be easily defined so that
they do not interfere with the host language. Handles upper and lower
case, and control characters. STAGE2 is itself written in a language
(FLUB) that is translated by STAGE2 into PAL-8.
