A means of making low cost general purpose computers is described in this report. The technique employed makes use of a brief and elementary order code which does not include arithmetical instructions. When required, arithmetical operations can be performed by means of sequences of minimal instructions. The computing power of such a machine is shown to be greatly increased by the aid of a few special locations in the core store able to perform logical operations on quantities passed through them.
