PROGRAMS FOR AN ELEI TBOIIC DIGITAL COMPUTER Second Edition

By M.

V. Wilkes, D.

Wheeler,

J.

and Stanley Gill Thoroughly revised and expanded to include maother than the Electronic Delay Storage Automatic Computer (EDS AC), this Second Edition offers a general introduction to programming for any computer of the stored-program type. It is designed chines

for those using electronic digital computers, for those

putting

new machines

into operation,

and

for those

wishing to assess the possible application of such

computers to their own problems.

Programming cannot be taught can

it

in the abstract nor

be learned without practice, and any book on

programming must use the order code

of

ticular machine, real or hypothetical.

Fortunately,

the order code of the

EDSAC

some par-

lends itself well to the

purposes of a book on programming, being fairly

and relatively easily memorized. Moreover, the EDSAC is a single-address binary machine, and a recent survey shows that, of the types of machines currently in use, about 50% use singleaddress order codes and about 60% work in the binary scale. Another advantage of using the order code of an established machine is that it is possible to draw on experience of programming and of the teaching of programming. straightforward

For these reasons, the authors chose to use the as their model in writing the First Edition. Since the methods described for the EDSAC may

readily be translated into order codes for other

machines, the authors have retained in this revised

same general plan as that of the First However, the growing use of other types of machines has led them to expand the book to include other computers, in the hope of making the book useful to those working with any storedprogram computer.
