A description is given of the block oriented simulation language CSMP-10ARL, which has been developed from CSMP-10 and is written mainly in FORTRAN IV for a PDP-10 computer. The major improvement made has been to incorporate user-defined blocks, which are written as FORTRAN subroutines. A large number of outputs may be defined within these subroutines by using dummy or user output blocks. Two other major improvements have been made, both enabling the saving of appreciable core storage. Firstly, arrays necessary to store information on each block used are automatically expanded to the size determined by the user. Secondly, the language is divided into a modelling program, which is used to perform the model simulation and store the output in a binary file on a specified storage device, and an output program, which is used to print and plot the character conversion of the binary file.
