Abstract : This self-instructional text is intended to instruct engineers in the use of PLACE (Programming Language for Automatic Checkout Equipment) to program the AN/GJQ-9. It covers all aspects of the language, from the basic elements (words, numbers, operation and punctuation characters) through the library forms for the AN/GJQ-9 to the development of new statements using the programmer-defined form and phrased-macro facilities of PLACE. Results of a test in which five engineers actually used the text to learn PLACE indicate that about 30 hours are required to complete it. To fully understand all of the material presented, some knowledge of the AN/GJQ-9 is required. (Author)
