Abstract : The document describes the LRDC Integrated Macro Package (IMP), an extensive package of macro functions which can be called by programmers writing in assembly language. Given a good macro assembler of the type available on many computers, IMP illustrates how it is possible to provide a significant programming aid without becoming involved in the problems of compiler writing. The package can be as extensive or as limited as is desired and can be tailored to meet specific application or configuration requirements. This IMP solution would seem to be appropriate for many laboratory installations with smaller computers and applications for which there are no suitable higher level languages available. (Author)
