CDC 3000
The CDC 3000

series computers from Control Data Corporation
Control Data Corporation
were mid-1960s follow-ons to the CDC 1604 and CDC 924 systems. Over time, a range of machines were produced - divided into the upper-3000 series and the lower-3000 series. CDC phased out production of the 3000 series in the early 1970s. The 3000 series were the cash cows of Control Data during the 1960s; sales of these machines funded the company while the 6000 series was designed. The upper 3000 series used a 48-bit word size. The first machine to be produced was the CDC 3600; first delivered in June 1963. First deliveries of the CDC 3400 and CDC 3800 were in December 1965. These machines were designed for scientific computing applications, however were overshadowed by the 60-bit CDC 6000 series machines when the CDC 6600 was introduced in December 1964 and delivered in 1965

Carriage Return
A CARRIAGE RETURN, sometimes known as a CARTRIDGE RETURN and often shortened to CR, or RETURN, is a control character or mechanism used to reset a device's position to the beginning of a line of text. It is closely associated with the line feed and newline concepts, although it can be considered separately in its own right. CONTENTS * 1 Typewriters * 2 Computers * 3 See also * 4 References TYPEWRITERSOriginally, the term "carriage return" referred to a mechanism or lever on a typewriter . For machines where the type element was fixed and the paper held in a moving carriage, this lever was operated after typing a line of text to cause the carriage to return to the far right so the type element would be aligned to the left side of the paper. The lever would also usually feed the paper to advance to the next line. Many electric typewriters such as IBM Electric or Underwood Electric made carriage return to be another key on the keyboard instead of a lever

Line Feed
In computing , a NEWLINE, also known as a LINE ENDING, END OF LINE (EOL), or LINE BREAK, is a special character or sequence of characters signifying the end of a line of text and the start of a new line. The actual codes representing a newline vary across operating systems, which can be a problem when exchanging text files between systems with different newline representations. The concepts of LINE FEED (LF) and CARRIAGE RETURN (CR) are closely associated, and can be considered either separately or together. In the physical media of typewriters and printers , two axes of motion, "down" and "across", are needed to create a new line on the page . Although the design of a machine (typewriter or printer) must consider them separately, the abstract logic of software can combine them together as one event. This is why a newline in character encoding can be defined as LF and CR combined into one (known variously as CR+LF, CRLF, LF+CR, or LFCR)

BCDIC
BCD ("Binary-Coded Decimal"), also called ALPHANUMERIC BCD, ALPHAMERIC BCD, BCD INTERCHANGE CODE, or BCDIC, is a family of representations of numerals, uppercase Latin letters, and some special and control characters as six-bit character codes . Unlike later encodings such as ASCII
ASCII
, BCD codes were not standardized. Different computer manufacturers, and even different product lines from the same manufacturer, often had their own variants, and sometimes included unique characters. Other six-bit encodings with completely different mappings, such as some FIELDATA variants or Transcode , are sometimes incorrectly termed BCD. Many variants of BCD encode the characters '0' through '9' as the corresponding binary values

Assembly Language
An ASSEMBLY (or ASSEMBLER) LANGUAGE, often abbreviated ASM, is a low-level programming language for a computer , or other programmable device, in which there is a very strong (but often not one-to-one ) correspondence between the language and the architecture\'s machine code instructions . Each assembly language is specific to a particular computer architecture. In contrast, most high-level programming languages are generally portable across multiple architectures but require interpreting or compiling . Assembly language
Assembly language
may also be called symbolic machine code. Assembly language

is converted into executable machine code by a utility program referred to as an assembler . The conversion process is referred to as assembly, or assembling the source code . Assembly time is the computational step where an assembler is run

Compass
A COMPASS is an instrument used for navigation and orientation that shows direction relative to the geographic cardinal directions (or points). Usually, a diagram called a compass rose shows the directions north , south , east , and west on the compass face as abbreviated initials. When the compass is used, the rose can be aligned with the corresponding geographic directions; for example, the "N" mark on the rose really points northward. Compasses often display markings for angles in degrees in addition to (or sometimes instead of) the rose. North
North
corresponds to 0°, and the angles increase clockwise , so east is 90° degrees, south is 180°, and west is 270°. These numbers allow the compass to show azimuths or bearings , which are commonly stated in this notation. Among the Four Great Inventions , the magnetic compass was first invented as a device for divination as early as the Chinese Han Dynasty (since c

APL (programming Language)
APL (named after the book A Programming Language) is a programming language developed in the 1960s by Kenneth E. Iverson . Its central datatype is the multidimensional array . It uses a large range of special graphic symbols to represent most functions and operators, leading to very concise code. It has been an important influence on the development of concept modeling, spreadsheets , functional programming , and computer math packages. It has also inspired several other programming languages. It is still used today for certain applications

Internal Revenue Service
The INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE (IRS) is the revenue service of the United States federal government . The government agency is a bureau of the Department of the Treasury , and is under the immediate direction of the Commissioner of Internal Revenue , who is appointed for a five year term by the President of the United States. The IRS is responsible for collecting taxes and administering the Internal Revenue Code , the federal statutory tax law of the U.S. Its duty to maximize tax revenue entails providing tax assistance to taxpayers, as well as pursuing and resolving instances of erroneous or fraudulent tax filings. The IRS has also overseen various benefits programs, and enforces portions of the Affordable Care Act . The IRS originated with the Commissioner of Internal Revenue, a federal office created in 1862 to assess the nation's first income tax , which was to raise funds for the American Civil War

Punched Card Input/output
A COMPUTER PUNCHED CARD READER or just COMPUTER CARD READER is a computer input device used to read executable computer programs and data from punched cards under computer control. A COMPUTER CARD PUNCH is a computer output device that punches holes in cards under computer control. Sometimes computer card readers were combined with computer card punches and, later, other devices to form multifunction machines. Most early computers, such as the ENIAC
ENIAC
, and the IBM NORC , provided for punched card input/output. Card readers and punches, either connected to computers or in off-line card to/from magnetic tape configurations, were ubiquitous through the mid-1970s. Punched cards had been in use since the 1890s; their technology was mature and reliable. Card readers and punches developed for punched card machines were readily adaptable for computer use
