Abstract : This report describes an extensive software system for the LINC computer. The system includes a symbolic program assembler, an Algol-58 compiler (which runs on an IBM 7090), a data-filing system, and various displaying and typing programs, including a general text editor. Utilization of all system features is described, with the aid of many examples, and annotated program listings of the system are included. The system is of interest both as an example of LINC utilization and as a study in the programming of small computers with aid of large computers. (Author)
