Updated information on the implementation of SIMSCRIPT II on Rand's360/65 computer, with directions for use, helpful hints for programmers, a listing of messages produced during compilation and during execution, and a listing of the new improved random number generator, SEED.V(1). Prefatory pages identify the principal changes from the July 1969 version. The first section, implementation considerations and restrictions, contains modifications to R-460, [The SIMSCRIPT II Programming] [Language], and can only be used in conjunction with it; it identifies statements not yet implemented.Other sections give the rules and deck setup for compilation, assembly, and execution; ways to define additional data sets; calling assembler language routines; storage allocation during execution; random number generation and statistical functions; and directions for installing the compiler, including a listing of JCL that can be used to load the library, compiler, and assembly interface and to punch off the SIMSCRIPT II macros, distributed procedures, and sample program.
