Transcode is a translation and organization program which enables FERUT, a single-address, fixed-point binary computer to operate as a three-address floating-decimal machine. FERUT is an exact counterpart of the Ferranti Computer 1 installed in the University of Manchester, England, in 1951. Transcode is an example of automatic coding 2 such as has been developed for other computers 3'4. Transcode has simple mnemonic instructions and a set of tape controls which facilitate the organization of… Expand
