PL/1 supports structured programming, linked lists or linked data structure handling, recursion, floating-point, fixed-point and complex character string and bit string handling. The syntax and words used are much like English, and the language is well-suited to defining complex data formats using a wide set of functions.

PL/1 has the following significant language features:

  • Defines data types regardless of hardware.
  • 100% free form and does not have reserved keywords.
  • Supports data structures like arrays, unions, structures, arrays of unions or structures, unions or structures of arrays, and any combination of the above.
  • Has four storage classes: STATIC, BASED, AUTOMATIC and CONTROLLED.
  • A block-oriented programming language that consists of blocks, packages and statements. This structuring method allows developers to produce very modular programs and applications.
