Abstract

This article describes a procedure that gives an APL system access to a work space several times larger than the main memory size of the machine where the APL system is implemented, regardless of its having an operating system supporting virtual storage. The procedure is specially useful in the case of small machines provided with a limited memory size. It can also be applied to large computer systems when several active work spaces are to be simultaneously present in main memory.
