Abstract:

During this period the hardware configuration of four Intel 8630 boards each having an Intel 8086 central processing unit and an 8087 numeric data processor with IEEE floating point arithmetic has been installed and is operational. Fortran 77 the subset with certain extensions to support IEEE floating point arithmetic is operational for numerical computing. ASM86 the Intel assembly language and PLM the Intel systems programming language are used for the necessary operating systems work to permit concurrent computing on the Intel processors. Author
