PALEDCO (PAL Assembler and Editor Combined)

PALEDCO is a combined editor and assembler, based on
Symbolic Editor (DEC-08-ESAB-PB) and PAL III Assembler
(DEC-08-ASB1-PB). It allows the user with an 8K machine to
enter PAL III language programs on-line using the editor,
edit them, and then to assemble them from the text image in
core, without the intervening paper tape step previously
reguired. If an error diagnostic should occur during assembly,
he has immediate access to the editor and his incorrect text
so that "instant" editing and reassembly is possible. "instant"
editing and higher assembly speed are the two primary advan-
tages of this system over existing ones. In addition, the
editor's text storage area has been expanded by 1030 (octal)
locations. Finally, all editor and assembler options which
were available in the DEC programs have been retained and
Bin loader in lower core is not destroyed, advantages over
earlier programs of this sort.
