## Abstract

The desirability of computer aids for the building as well as the solving of Mathematical Programming models is argued. A short survey is given of some of the distinct approaches possible in designing matrix generators/languages for such a role. It is then suggested that the approach most suited to general models is to design a language close to widely used mathematical notation. The facilities needed in such a language are discussed and the implementation using the MAGIC (MAtrix Generator Instruction Convertor) language described.
