Abstract : The report includes a step-by-step demonstration of the basic principles of JOSS operation to enable engineers to solve progressively more involved problems in numeric calculation. Following an overview of the JOSS system, including descriptions of the console and language, examples of JOSS input and output demonstrate how the basic commands, both direct and indirect, are applied. The appendices include a list of legitimate JOSS commands, a description of the use of expressions and propositions, and a discussion of the available JOSS functions.
