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.
