Abstract: DSP-8 is a collection of useful subroutines and conventions
for programming a small computer (the PDP-8 family, in this case),
which specifically facilitates the task of the diagnostic programmer in
creating diagnostics to test hardware peripherals for the system. Some
considerable thought has gone into the writing of the specifications for
the components of this package, and the experience of the authors in
writing maintenance diagnostic is the major basis of the choice of
available elements of this package.

Because the DSPS source can only be assembled by a PS/8 or OS/8
configuration, the ASCII paper tape offered is for DSP8P, a PAL3
assemblable source file for smaller configurations.
