Abstract : The report describes the magnetic tape programs and usage conventions established by the Operations Research Division for use in the Operations Control Center Project. The programs are written for the IBM 704 Computer. By providing one set of programs for handling all magnetic tape operations, restarting after interruption is greatly facilitated. Rules are included for the initial preparation of tapes, tape formats, and multi-reel handling. The routines included in the package are described in sufficient detail for their use by other programs in the Operations Control Project. (Author)
