ENIAC short code(ID:6030/eni002)

Clippinger/von Neumann short code 

Clippinger and von Neumann modifcation of the ENIAC to make it more preprogrammable, based in part of theories of generalisability encountered with conversations with Turing in the 30s.
The system has an earlier date than the published one because Booth and Britten studied it in 1946, and later in 1947, incorporating their ideas into the ARC dsign set.

(29 September 1948) view details Abstract: In the Spring of 1947, J. von Neumann suggested to the author that it would be possible to run the ENIAC in a way very different from the way contemplated when it was designed; a way which had very important advantages to be discussed below...It is hoped by the author that this report will make the task of coding problems so clear and straightforward that physicists, aerodynamicists, applied mathematicians, etc. with no prior experience with computing machines can code their own problems External link: Online copy
