Abstract : CPS is a generalized programming and file management system written for use on the PDP-8 processor of DDigital Equipment Corporation'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. The present document, Volume 3, describes the modifications and support routines which were added to DEC's 8-K FORTRAN system in order to allow it to interface with CPS. (Author)
