UCSD pascal and hardware implementation

The pascal language has swiftly gained widespread support throughout the world, especially in teaching institutions, as it enforces a high degree of structured thinking and leads to programs which are well documented simply by their code. The University of California at San Diego has developed a special version of pascal embedded in a complete disc operating system, originally as a vehicle for computer aided instruction. This has proved to be effective on a wide range of microcomputers. The present report summarises the extent to which this software and hardware has been developed, and is based on conversations with a number of US specialists including the director of the UCSD system (Professor Bowles). The avenues to effective use of pascal for instrumentation systems are open for ARRB to use if they wish by: (1) obtaining an exorciser version of the system, (2) investigating the m 6800 p code in rom possibilities, (3) considering loading the UCSD system onto the ARRB cyber, (4) using native code compilers for pascal code down loaded from the cyber (a).
