Paper tape program part of a collection of paper tape programs used for input to CSIRAC.
The collection includes the original University of Melbourne Computation Laboratory Paper Tape Library of tapes of subroutines and programs, and program and data tapes from staff and outside users.
Most of the paper tapes were 12-track punched paper tapes. 5 hole paper tapes were used primarily for data input and output rather than program input.
Each tape has a 'T' number. The Computation Laboratory Paper Tape Library consisted of tapes with a tape number less than 700. There were not 700 tapes but the number 700 was arbitrarily chosen to separate the Computation Laboratory Library tapes from user tapes. Tapes 800 to 899 belonged to John Spencer.
