Abstract:

With growing Army-wide use of programmable calculators, a system is needed to support the programming and testing of calculator software. This thesis provides a Fortran IV program to enable an operations research analyst to more efficiently write and document HP41CV calculator programs. Optical bar code readable by the HP41CV is generated by the program. Also given is an IBM EXEC II program which provides an interactive programming environment including on-line, self contained instructions. To illustrate the use of the system and the quality of the finished bar code and calculator program listings, examples are given including single variable statistics and linear programming. A final example provides a set of short utility routines which illustrate how programs can be developed for use in a calculator read-only-memory.
