GLYPNIR is a programming language for the ILLIAC IV, a computer being developed by the University of Illinois and Burroughs Corporation. To facilitate the debugging of scientific GLYPNIR programs, a GLYPLIT execution process GLYPNIR to PLI translator was devised. The present report is a users manual for GLYPLIT. The report should be of interest to those facing similar translation problems are considering the differences between code for an ILLIAC IV type machine and a serial machine especially Appendix A, as well as to users of the GLYPLIT system.
