14. OTHER PROGRAMMING OR OPERATING INFORMATION OR RESTRICTIONS
output produced by other host machines may differ from the test output supplied on microfiche by NESC for the CDC, IBM and UNIVAC.
Elements of the package have been tested successfully by the author on the following additional machines: BESM-6, Burroughs6700, CRAY-1, PDP10, PDP11, Varian V76, and Z80 (using Microsoft FORTRAN). Modifications are required to execute the package on Honeywell equipment. On the CDC6000/7000 series hardware the PROGRAM card must be inserted at the beginning of each driver.
Because the 1966 FORTRAN standard did not specify some of the functions usually found in a support library, and the ANSI X3.9-1978 standard fails to mention a COTANgent program, some libraries may not have all of the functions being tested or may use names other than those used in this package. Drivers for the ASIN/ACOS and TAN/COTAN tests may have to be modified for this reason. All drivers may also require modification if the MACHAR subprogram malfunctions or if a local random number generator is to be used. MACHAR deliberately causes two floating-point underflows; it is assumed that program execution will continue each time.
