Abstract:

SURF is an EDP-based service for Support of User Records and Files. SURF is designed to meet, or be adapted to, a variety of unique requirements fulfilling the needs of individuals in organizing, maintaining and finding what is in their personal files, without extensive reprogramming for unusual or special demands. It is programmed in SDCs MADAM language which is implemented for an 8K IBM 1401, or IBM 36030 with 1401 emulator. This document describes SURF routines and associated operational requirements in detail sufficient for using the programs. Included are a summary of the history and purpose of SURF development. SURF usage, and a functional description of inputs, outputs and processes. Three appendices present complete listings of instructions for each routine, examples of the variety of inputs and outputs required by different SDC users, and operational instructions to keypunch and machine operators.
