Elsewhere in these Proceedings, Boyle has presented an overview of the issues relating to transportability of mathematical software libraries and has surveyed four of the systems, including TAMPR, which have been designed to assist in automating the development, conversion, and maintenance of such libraries. This report considers in more detail the architecture of TAMPR and briefly discusses typical applications. It concludes with a discussion of our experiences and plans for the future.

This report is organized as a survey of the historical and operational aspects of TAMPR. It stops short of supplying full details and examples but cites other publications in which they may be found.
