An introduction to the capabilities of GASP (General Activity Simulation Program). GASP can be understood by engineers as well as by computer programmers. It provides uniformity in system description and includes as many automatic error detection and debugging systems as possible. GASP cannot compete with SIMSCRIPT but serves well those who have only a small machine or who use several computers with no common language.

The paper was a product of the RAND Corporation from 1948 to 2003 that captured speeches, memorials, and derivative research, usually prepared on authors' own time and meant to be the scholarly or scientific contribution of individual authors to their professional fields. Papers were less formal than reports and did not require rigorous peer review.
