The ICL series was indeed bit words, used as four 6-bit characters. Using 8-bit media like papertape required escape characters called alpha, beta and delta to switch case and special characters. ICL replaced s with and ME29, which was a bit architecture machine cut back to 24 bits for compatibility with s.

ICT was the name given to a series of mainframe computers released by International Computers and Tabulators (ICT) and later International Computers Limited (ICL) during the s and '70s. The series was notable for being one of the few non-American competitors to the IBM System/, enjoying significant success in the European and British Commonwealth : bit.

Origins. When ICL was formed in as a result of the merger of International Computers and Tabulators (ICT) with English Electric Leo Marconi and Elliott Automation, the company considered a number of options for its future product line.

These included enhancements to either ICT's Series or the English Electric System 4, and a development based on J. Iliffe's Basic Language Machine. This is an index of the archive of ICL material held in the Science Museum Library. For details of access click whole archive is covered in the master index.

The ICL DRS was a range of departmental computers from International Computers Limited (ICL). Standing originally for Distributed Resource System, the full name was later dropped in favour of the abbreviation. During the mids separate Office Systems business units had produced a disparate range of products including IBM-compatible PCs such as the PWS (an PC AT Clone), small servers.

The target was the ICL series. This compiler, in turn, was the parent of the Pascal compiler for the Information Computer Systems (ICS) Multum minicomputer.
