The GPSS/360 program offers adaptability, flexibility, and ease of use in a general purpose modeling tool which is applicable to the analysis of a wide range of dynamic systems. The most significant extensions and improvements in GPSS/360 in comparison to previous versions of the General Purpose Simulation System can be summarized as follows: • Signed halfword or fullword parameters and savevalues • Eight independent random-number generators • Additional Standard Numerical Attributes • Boolean variables • Preemption based on priority • Matrix savevalues • COUNT and SELECT blocks • Group entity and associated blocks • Symbolic entities • Macroinstruction capabilities • Update feature • Output editor • Graphic capabilities GPSS/36O also offers greater versatility by operating under OS/360 and DOS/36O.
