Abstract:

The report is intended as a working manual for personnel preparing problems for the ENIAC. It should also serve as a guide to those groups who have computing problems that could be solved on the ENIAC. The report discusses the ENIAC from the point of view of the coder, describing its memory as well as the code itself. The 94 instructions which make up the Converter Code are discussed in complete detail describing what the instruction accomplishes as well as how to use each instruction. A few remarks are made on the more general subject of problem preparation for large scale computers in general based on the experience of operating the ENIAC. Author
