Abstract : SCRIPT is an executive control program designed and written at AFCRL to allow highly interactive on-line control of a medium-size digital computer used for research applications. Subroutines written by the user in conventional assembly or compiler languages are stored in a drum memory and called into core for execution by commands written on- or off-line in SCRIPT. Thus, arbitrarily complex functions can be controlled by a single word in SCRIPT. Housekeeping capabilities include construction of loops and conditional statements, text handling ability, index registers, and macro definitions. (Author)
