Abstract : The report contains instructions and examples for converting conversational programs from the GMS package on the IBM 360/2250 programs which operates remotely the CDC 6400 through INTERCOM under the SCOPE monitor. Steps in the procedure are outlined, and important differences are explained fully in separate chapters using the analysis of covariance unit as an example. Important phases of the conversion which are explained in detail are the overlay structure, the use of the graphics subroutines (including simulation of the Program Function Key's), direct access input/output, analysis output, and various other system differences. In addition, a user example is given to show the effect of the conversion on the conversational program. Listings of the FORTRAN programs are contained in the Appendix. (Author)
