by S. G. Tucker
This paper describes the kind of microprogram control that has been used in several models of SYSTEM/360. A microprogramming language, as well as some of the main techniques used in 'assembling' and testing microprograms, are discussed. Applications of microprogram control to the design of emulators, to compatibility features, and to special modifications are summarized.
