SCRIPT, a part of IBM’s Document Composition Facility or DCF, is a text markup language for IBM z/VM and z/OS systems. SCRIPT was developed for CP-67/CMS by Stuart Madnick at MIT, succeeding CTSS RUNOFF. The current version is called SCRIPT/VS. SCRIPT is a procedural markup language. Inline commands called control words, indicated by a period in the first column of a logical line, describe the desired appearance of the formatted text.
