  • Coding for A.R.C.
    Booth, Andrew Donald
    Britten, Kathleen H. V.
    "Although this report deals specifically with the coding of problems for A.R.C. (automatic relay computer) it can be considered as the successor to our previous work on the design of electronic computers. This in because we have made the code of A.R.C. identical with that projected for the electronic machine . The advantage of this arrangement is obvious, we shall be able to transfer any problem which has been coded for A.R.O, directly to the electronic machine when this becomes available In addition, the experience which we gain in using the simpler machine may form a valuable guide to possibly advantageous modifications of the code for the faster computer."-- preface
