This publication describes the programming required
to use lacs to control the input/output of data from
card reader, card punch, printer, and tape files. The
lacs descriptive entries (DlaCS and DTF) and macro
instructions are explained in detail. The types of data
records and tape labels handled by lacs "are defined.
Also, two sections are included that should be espe-
cially useful to experienced programmers: (1) Sum-
maries - briefly lists storage-area considerations, macro
instructions, and processing-overlap considerations; (2)
Program Operation - describes lacs library routines,
labels, halts, and error indications.
lacs is a supplement to the 1401 Autocoder program,
and the reader should be familiar with the program
described in Autocoder (on Tape) Specifications for
IBM 1401 and 1460, Form C24-1434.
