|Abstract||The initial version of IPL-V for the Philco 2000 has been completed and is now operating on the computer. This model, IPLT-1, contains the loader, interpreter, output, housekeeping functions, and some of the primitives of the 7090 version.This system was written mainly in JOVIAL, a procedure-oriented language, and was compiled to produce a Philco TAC binary operating deck. Certain portions were written in Philco TAC language to speed up the operation of the system during execution and to facilitate handling of primitives which in JOVIAL would have been uneconomical. These assembly-language coded sections constitute less than 3 percent of the system.The present model assembles IPL program cards at the rate of 500 per minute in the listing mode. This compares favorably with the 7090 model, since System Development Corporation's configuration of the Philco computer operates at approximately one-fifth the speed of the 7090. Interpretation time also compares favorably with the 7090 model taking into account the difference in speeds of the two computers. The package of J primitives produced by H. A. Simon is being used and assembled with the IPL program. With listing suppressed, assembly time of these routines is only a few seconds. Input to the Philco 2000 is by card, and the system operates as a program executed in phase three of the SL Philco operating system. The J165, J166 dump and reload features are working, and this technique can be used to save an assembled IPL program on tape for later use. Unused region assignments are not returned to available space; therefore additional routines may be added with new data for reload and run from a dump tape. However, card input is extremely fast (2000 cards per minute) and normal operating procedure at SDC is card input.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
