In this paper a methodology for the use of temporal logic as an executable imperative language is introduced. The approach, which provides a concrete framework, called MetateM, for executing temporal formulae, is motivated and illustrated through examples. In addition, this introduction provides references to further, more detailed, work relating to the MetateM approach to executable logics.
