Abstract : The report describes first operational version of the Vectran precompiler. The Vectran system, of which the precompiler is a major part, was developed to increase capability and achieve greater efficiency of operation in the field of space systems simulation. The precompiler furnishes the engineer with a computational tool to perform matrix and vector arithmetic as conveniently as FORTRAN performs scalar arithmetic. (Author)
