Abstract : In considering potential replacements for computer facilities, such as that for the DREA DECSYSTEM 20/60, comparison standards must be specified. In the comparison standards, two notable characteristics that should be specified are the speed and accuracy of numerical computations. HILBRT is a benchmarking program which may be used for this purpose. It is based on the inversion of finite segments of the infinite Hilbert matrix. The theory, program, and example results are presented. Keywords: FORTRAN.
