This is the only interpretation which allows me to attach a meaning to Gawlik's statement "that a compiler should aim not merely to simplify programming, but to abolish it. If we instruct an "intelligent" person to do something for us, we can permit ourselves all kind of sloppiness, inaccuracies, incompleteness, contradictions etc.
And a human servant is therefore useful by virtue of his "disobedience".
This may be of some convenience for the master who dislikes to express himself clearly; the price paid is the non-negligible risk that the servant performs, on his own account, something completely unintended. If, however, we instruct a machine to do something we should be aware of the fact that for the first time in the history of Mankind we have a servant to our disposal who really does what he has been told to do.
In man-computer communication there is not only a need to be unusually precise and unambiguous, there is, at last, also a point in being so, if at least we wish to obtain the full benefits of the powerful obedient mechanical servant.
Efforts aimed to conceal this new need for preciseness -for the supposed benefit of the user- will in fact be harmful: for at the same time they will conceal the equally new possibilities of automatic computing, of having intricate processes under complete control. I go on quoting Mr. Gawlik: " MIRFAC has been developed to satisfy the basic criterion that its problem statements should be intelligible to non-programmers, with the double aim that the user should not be required to learn any language that he does not already know and that the problem statement can be checked for correctness by somebody who understands the problem but who may know nothing of programming.
I do not see the point of Mr. Gawlik's "basic criterion". Elsewhere see  I have warned against the "
