Prodel is a programming language used for business applications on the Bull DPS7 mainframe computers. Prodel stands for "PROcedure for DELivery". The language drastically simplified development and maintenance of large scale financial and administrative applications by enabling developers to work with data at a higher level of abstraction than previous languages. This facilitated program creation through the use of automated tools like report generators, screen painters, and debugging aids. The language supported record level I/O, batch processing, as well as interactive transactions in an online environment. Despite its niche usage on specific mainframe platforms during the late 70s and early 80s, Prodel isn't widely known today due to technological advancements that have rendered it obsolete in mainstream programming contexts.
