Abstract : The Cooley Programming System (CPS) is a generalized programming and file management system written for use on the PDP-8 processor of Digital Equipment Corporations's LINC-8 computer. A minimum memory size of 8192 words is required. Extensive use is made of the two tape units present on every LINC-8 for both file storage and system residence. The four volumes entitled CPS System Architecture and Conventions, CPS Basic Programming Package, CPS 8-K FORTRAN Package, and CPS System Utility Programs were written in order to take a snapshot of CPS at one point in its continuing development. This version of CPS is considered to be a first generation system; successive versions are on the drawing boards and internally resemble their parent less and less every day. The present document, Volume 1, describes the system structure and conventions. (Author)
