  • The SYMBOL system is the result of a major developmental effort to increase the functional capability of hardware. Part of the charter of the broad based project was to reexamine the traditional division between hardware and software, to reexamine the respective roles of program instruction and data storage, and to reduce the overall complexity and cost of computing. In order to adequately evaluate the concepts that had been developed it was concluded that an experimental, usable, real system… CONTINUE READING
