ICES - PROGRAMMERS GUIDE

THIS REPORT SERVES AS A GUIDE IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF NEW COMPUTER PROCESSES OR MODIFICATION OF AVAILABLE COMPUTER PROCESSES COVERING ENGINEERING PROBLEM SOLUTIONS IN ICES SUBSYSTEMS. THE MANUAL DESCRIBES THE STEPS THAT ARE TAKEN TO GENERATE A SUBSYSTEM OF ENGINEERING PROGRAMS. ENGINEERING PROGRAMS FOR ICES ARE WRITTEN IN ICETRAN AND ARE PROCESSED BY THE ICETRAN PRECOMPILER, WHICH GENERATES AN EQUIVALENT FORTRAN PROGRAM. THE GENERATED FORTRAN PROGRAM IS THEN PROCESSED BY FORTRAN COMPILER AND AN OBJECT PROGRAM MODULE IS PRODUCED. ICETRAN IS A PROCEDURE-ORIENTED COMPUTER PROGRAMING LANGUAGE THAT IS USED FOR DEFINING ENGINEERING PROCEDURES. ICETRAN STATEMENTS MAY BE BROKEN UP INTO 3 CATEGORIES' 1' FORTRAN STATEMENTS; 2' FORTRAN-TYPE STATEMENTS - THESE STATEMENTS ARE LIKE FORTRAN, HOWEVER, THEY DIFFER IN BOTH GRAMMAR AND USE; AND 3' NON-FORTRAN STATEMENTS THAT CONSIST OF DESCRIPTIVE PHRASES AND PARAMETERS. THE REPORT INCLUDES SPECIFICATIONS AND CAPABILITIES OF ALL ICETRAN STATEMENTS. THE READER WILL NEED TO SUPPLEMENT THE GUIDE WITH THE FORTRAN IV 'E-LEVEL SUBSET' MANUAL, IBM SYSTEMS REFRENCE LIBRARY C28-6513-0. /BPR/
