Abstract:

The micro implemented loader MIL represents an advance in computer program loading technology for microprogrammable computer architecture. The MIL facility replaces, with a simpler approach, the complex system software traditionally associated with this function. It provides dynamic loading, linking, and delinking of computer modules and supports object library functions with a minimum of user and implementor effort. MIL takes advantage of special data structures and firmware to achieve its efficiency. The loader was developed and implemented at NSWC on a Nanodata QM-1 computer in less than 200 micro locations.
