Abstract : This report contains a detailed description of the concept and use of the Fortran Simulation (FORTSIM) Language program which extends FORTRAN language to accommodate large scale simulation models. It permits greater utilization of available memory, introduces a Macro facility similar to those available in machine language compilers, and provides programming ease with the use of indirect addressing and a method of assuring commonality between programs and subroutines. The program is executable on the IBM 360/370 and Honeywell 6000 Series computer system. (Author)
