Abstract : The AED (Automated Engineering Design) System has been developed over a 10-year period by the M. I. T. Computer-Aided Design Project. The report is a user reference manual for the AED-0 language and the Version 3 AED-1 compiler and associated system building packages, as released in July, 1969 for use on IBM 360-series computers in both batch-oriented and time-sharing operating systems. Part 1 of the manual describes the AED-0 language proper, including descriptions of several subroutine packages which extend the features of the language beyond the forms derived from Algol-60 syntax. Part 2 describes additional subroutine packages useful as building blocks for general software construction. Bootstraps of AED to other computers were partially completed under the contract, and are being completed outside M.I.T. The report will also serve as a user reference manual for these versions.
