Abstract : This is a reference guide for JOSS sophomores, who have had experience at a console and are familiar with the introductory JOSS literature. In addition to the basic tutorial material on JOSS language, commands, and functions, practical instructions are given on how to insert paper and change ribbons; typewriter settings; procedures for contacting JOSS; and actions to take in the event of console, line, or machine malfunction. Twelve annotated sample programs are included, together with an index that complements the heavy cross-referencing used throughout the notebook. In contrast to the more technical JOSS publications, these notes generally eschew detailed discussion in favor of informal interpretation and exemplary material.
