Appears to be a university or the like, copied and bound format of the Manual. Summary of DAPL -- supports both horizontal and vertical microprogramming for the AMD 2900, the Fairchild 9400 Macrologic, and the Motorola 10800 4-bit slice microprocessors. There are two sections, one for definitions and the other for specifying microinstructions, to a DAPL program. The DESCRIPTION section is where the microinstruction format, micromemory, symbolic expressions, user defined macros and mapping ROM or PLA label tables are defined. The MICROPROGRAM section is where microprogram statements specify, either implicitly or explicitly or both, the bit configuration of a particular microword... (from the first page Summary).
