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. Complete and clear documentation is available. ...Software Description: The system is written in Fortran and Assembler programming languages for implementation on an IBM 360/40 computer using the OS version operating system. 100K 8-bit bytes of core storage are required to operate the model.
