Title: A MAP fixed-point, packing-unpacking routine for the IBM 7094 computer

Author: Helfman, Robert S.

Date: 1966

Source: Res. Note PSW-RN-103. Berkeley, CA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Southwest Forest and Range Experiment Station. 3 p

Description: Two MAP (Macro Assembly Program) computer routines for packing and unpacking fixed point data are described. Use of these routines with Fortran IV Programs provides speedy access to quantities of data which far exceed the normal storage capacity of IBM 7000-series computers. Many problems that could not be attempted because of the slow access-speed of tape memory can be attacked in this manner.
