Abstract:

An interpretive system which transforms the LGP-30 into a three address, floating decimal, general-purpose computer primarily suited for scientific and engineering calculations is described in this report. The system is complete in that all mathematical, logical, input-output, and tracing operations normally called for in such calculations can be performed within the system without reference to the basic machine language of the LGP-30. Ease of use, highest possible speed of arithmetic, inclusion of the most frequently used logical operations, and the greatest range in the transcendental functions have been the main general considerations in developing the system. The user of the system need only concern himself with sections entitled General Considerations through Programming, while those interested in the structure of the system will find it described in the sections entitled Internal Structure of the System.
