Abstract:

The original report describes the design techniques and computer programs of the RADC Assembly Program RADCAP. The first major phase of work was performed over a period of 13 months. The second phase, specified as Engineering Change A, was begun in Feb 1965 and was completed in Aug 1965. Phase I can be described as three tasks. The first concentrated on studies of floatability, segmentation, and rollback and recovery aspects of a time-shared assembler. The second task, known as the Stage 1 Assembler, was an off-line assembler that produced object code, to operate in a time-shared environment. These two tasks are contained in Volume 1 of this report. The third task of Phase I was the implementation of RADCAP under control of the Executive Control Program Volume 2. The second major phase of work consisted of a set of five tasks 1 Basic mathematical subroutine library and a library maintenance program, 2 A report generator, 3 Program debugging package, 4 RADCAP programming manual, 5 Study of dynamic program structures. The revision to Volumes 1 and 2 describes the modifications made to the Assembler to permit optimum operation in the CDC 8090 Segmenter Memory Computer. These modifications include generating object code in absolute form, rather than relative to some dynamically specified location, and the development of a macro-handling capability. Author
