Abstract : One of the effective methods of preparing programs for Numerical Control machine tools is to design a special problem-oriented system of automatic programming in operation of which no special knowledge of computing or programming technique would be expected, and which would, nevertheless, enable the programming of a wide variety of details. The automatic programming systems SAP-II, consists of a special symbolic language and a translator. This system determines automatically the algorithms necessary for the programming of the detail, compiles the corresponding programs, controls the necessary computing and gives out a program for the interpolator (director) on a punched tape. All this is managed on the comparatively small amount of the initial information about the detail fed into the storage of the computer. The mentioned initial information is written down by the programmer as a mne-monic 'language program' consisting of a 'group of designations' and a 'string of following'. (Author)
