A storage allocation scheme for a machine with a 2048-instruction core store and a magnetic drum is described. The use of the drum for storing program blocks and/or data must be directed by the programmer through auxiliary information in the ALGOL program. The administrative routines controlling the storage at run time are described in full. A detailed example is given.
