Abstract : This paper describes an operating system for the IBM 7044 which provides more core storage for the programmer than is available when using the IBM system IBSYS. This is achieved by sacrificing efficiency of input/output; and the system should be used only for programs which cannot run under IBSYS because of core storage requirements. This reflects a drastic change in RAND's computer system: originally an IBM 7040 coupled to a 7044, it now has been reduced to the latter machine. Input and output devices are tape units; tapes are processed by an IBM 360/30.
