IBM 7090/94 Technical References
Technical references for a 40-year old computer system are sometimes difficult to come by. However, the following (available, perhaps, at a local university library) were of great help while preparing this web page:
Every item presented as a fact, in this web page, came from one or more of the above references. Items presented as opinions, etc. (e.g., probably) came to the web page author either verbally or via e-mail from actual programmers of the 7090/94 machine.
- Davis, Gordon B. (1965). An Introduction to the IBM 7090/94 Computer, McGraw-Hill, Inc., QA76.8.I25 D38. An excellent introductory text to the 7090/94 series with good photographs, description of I/O peripherals, and programming examples.
- Leeds, Herbert D. and Weinberg, Gerald M. (1961). Computer Programming Fundamentals, McGraw-Hill, Inc., LOC 60-16637. A beginning book for the novice programmer.
- Saxon, James A. (1963). Programming the IBM 7090: A Self-Instructional Programmed Manual, Prentice-Hall, Inc., QA76.8.I25 S25. A very detailed text with, for example, floating point arithmetic operations at the bit-level -- emphasis is on programming.
- Sherman, Philip M. (1963). Programming and Coding the IBM 709-7090-7094 Computers, John Wiley and Sons, Inc. QA76.8.I175 S44. Detailed programming examples.
