ADVERTISEMENTS: Generation of Computers: The Evolution! Computer Generation # 1. First Generation Computers (): The first generation of computers was marked by the use of vacuum tube for the electronic components and by the use of either electrostatic tubes (i.e., cathode ray tubes) or mercury delay lines for storage. Examples of such first generation .

Series. The ICL Series was a range of mainframe computer systems announced by the UK manufacturer ICL on 9 October The company had started development, under the name "New Range" immediately on its formation in The range was not designed to be compatible with any previous machines produced by the company, nor with any competitor's machines:.

When ICL was formed in as a result of the merger of International Computers and Tabulators (ICT) with English Electric Leo Marconi, the company considered a number of options for its future product line.

These included enhancements to either ICT's Series or the English Electric System 4, and a development based on J. Illiffe's Basic Language Machine. ICL series: analysis of plane frames and grids International Computers Ltd. ICL series: COBOL compilers International Computers Ltd.

The ICL DRS was a range of departmental computers from International Computers Limited (ICL). Standing originally for Distributed Resource System, the full name was later dropped in favour of the abbreviation.

Fourth Generation Computer ( )- Microprocessors. Fourth Generation used VLSI (Very Large Scale Integration) VLSI is nicknamed as miracle chip. Used Pipeline processing. Concept of Internet was used. ICT series explained. ICT was the name given to a series of mainframe computers released by International Computers and Tabulators (ICT) and later International Computers Limited (ICL) during the s and '70s.

The series was notable for being one of the few non-American competitors to the IBM System/, enjoying significant success in the. Series.

Some of the salient features are: § Users can communicate to a microcomputer very easily. § Running and maintenance costs are low. The fourth generation also produces simplification of the language. This made managing of data much simple and writing instructions made simple by. A Computer Called LEO: In I was coding Cobol at ICL on a rareon VME-B, being hosted on George III - a feat common on IBM machines but less so on ICL.

George-III had some multi-user features, but mostly they used it just for multi-processing. I think the ICL series were less related to Leo and more to Atlas.

The ICL computer was based on the ICL series of computers and used a six-bit character instead of the 8-bit byte used today. This meant that the character set did not have lower case letters. The EDS60 drive, ‘Exchangeable Disc System 60’, would hold up to 60 million of these six-bit characters.

3 - Software. I had to read through, understand what the program was trying to achieve then write specs so a COBOL programmer could re-write the programs, this time for an ICL series machine, which incidentally was a lovely machine to work on.

bit-level work (including the ICL compiler I used many moons ago), so it would be a mistake to think that this is in any way revolutionary. The implementation used PIC 1 as the vehicle for this, treating the field as a binary integer of the requisite length. It was (incidentally).

The sign (F, C, or D) is stored in the left nybble of the rightmost byte: Unsigned = X'F1F2F3' or C''. Spitbol systems are available for the IBM / Series, Univac Ser Univac Series and the ICL Series. More than copies of the IBM version alone have been distributed. COMPARISON ALGORITHM A non-numeric algorithm which did not seem to favor any of the four languages was chosen for the comparison by: 3.

My first mainframe (ICL series) had exactly that situation. We had 8 registers, or which only three cound be used as pointers. Typically, you would call a function like CALL X3 MY_FUN (yes, only 6-char uppercase names allowed). If the called function was written to work with 7 arguments, it would skip those at the return using EXIT X3 7.

We then both worked on the GEORGE operating system project for the ICL series of mainframes. At the end of I became a founder member of a small team supporting ICL´s internal CRM system, based upon Siebeland an ORACLE 9i database.

It is doubtful that MacDuff's beliefs were quite a lot in the early days of computing. Machines such as the ICL series had sound output on their operator consoles.

ICL COBOL (running on an ICL series mainframe running George 3 - now THERE was a great OpSys!) was the first 'real' language, followed by IBM's version of COBOL when we upgraded to an IBM mainframe, then rolled in some PC-based stuff when we got some IBM PC XTs (Mhz processors, 10MB HDD, KB RAM) including, with a friend and.ENIAC: It was the first general-purpose electronic computer built in at University of Pennsylvania, USA by John Mauchly and J.
