An Off-Line Simulation System for Development of Real-Time FORTRAN Programs.
White, James W.
Implementation of an ISA FORTRAN standard for executive functions and process input-output within a simulation system called MINIFOR provides a useful real-time program development tool for small single function, dedicated minicomputers having a FORTRAN compiler but limited program development aids. A FORTRAN-based pre-compiler is used off-line to eliminate most compilation errors, while the run-time system is used off-line to eliminate most execution errors. The description of the structure and features of the MINIFOR system illustrates its capabilities and limitations. Attention is directed toward the run-time system and an example of its use is included. (Author/MK)
