Abstract : Fats is a system of subroutines, accessible from Fortran and other high-level languages, which generate the control tapes for GPO's Linotron electronic typesetting machine. The routines have been designed for mainly tabular composition, primarily scientific and mathematical tables. Fats greatly expands the number of Linotron users to include programmers familiar with Fortran, PL1, etc., but it may be easily accessed by assembly language. It also minimizes the requirement for an intimate knowledge of Linotron function and control codes.
