Abstract : The hypothetical computer called EX-1 is greatly simplified for training purposes. However, it enables the student to program and thus grasp the major concepts involved in programming for a modern high speed digital computer. This training device has proved its worth in many classes, however, the excitement, anticipation, and give and take between programmer and computer have been missing since EX-1 programs could not actually be operated. This drawback has now been removed. Programs written in EX-1 language can actually be run. An EX-1 Simulator has been used with considerable success in programmer training classes for military personnel conducted by SDC at Offutt Air Force Base, Nebraska. (Author)
