    Random-access file storage adds a new degree of freedom over sequential storage on tape, but sequential accessibility may still be an important measure of performance of a random-access storage device. High sequential speed improves file loading and dumping, periodic file review, and the scanning involved in many file addressing methods. View full abstract»

    The organization of a file in random access storage for efficient retrieval of records is an important and recurring problem in systems design. The usual form of the retrieval problem is: to find a particular record, given the content of one predetermined field (the key) of that record. View full abstract»

    In comparing this programming language with others, it is necessary to consider not only its use in description and analysis (which has been emphasized here), but also its use in the execution of algorithms, i.e., its use as a source language to be translated into computer code for the purpose of automatic execution.

    In conclusion it should be noted that the practical use of these classification techniques will usually require the use of high speed computing facilities. This is especially true if the dimension of the problem is at all large or if one must empirically generate the conditional istribution of the statistic being used by utilizing the individual observations available in the samples. There are man... View full abstract»

    Since the first stored-program computer was built, the importance of programming in the total computing system has grown continuously. The programming interface between user and computer—the system programs—has become a key factor in the full exploitation of technological advances in hardware design. The formulation of design principles based on systems programming experience will st... View full abstract»

    In the past few years, programming methods in general use have tended to emphasize modularity of program design; not only for large, complex programs, but even for those of relatively modest size. A common method for achieving modularity has been to divide the program into (relocatable) segments, because: • Coding and checkout of the individual segments can proceed in parallel, thereby cons...
