Conference paper
Part of the Informatik-Fachberichte book series (INFORMATIK, volume 25)


A programming language is presented which is used as a system implementation language instead of PL360 for constructing hardware related system modules for the AMDAHL 470 computer at the “MPI für Plasmaphysik”.


Eine Programmiersprache wird vorgestellt, welche PL360 als Implementierungssprache für die Entwicklung von Hardware-naher Software für die AMDAHL 470 am MPI für Plasmaphysik ablöst.
