Abstract

A Table Load program is used to load into memory a new set of Read and Record Translate Tables which support a new character set or to load a table which contains the escapement and velocity information for a new font. These tables are stored on magnetic cards. The program accepts the magnetic card from the card deck hopper, reads and loads the data into memory and exits the card through the throat at completion. After the routine is complete (card removed from the throat), the operator can resume normal system functions.
