ER 56 Machinecode

Programming Language/Software

COMPART ER 56 is the native machinecode of the ER 56. “COMPART ER 56, for instance, refers to a particular computer, the Standard Elektric ER 56, for which the language has been written. ER 56 contained three subpackages, a space organizer, as set of different random number generators, and selectors for the repertoire of graphic elements. Nake used COMPART ER 56 extensively to create more than 100 drawings.” [Dietrich, 1986, p. 163]

A detailed description in German is available in [Nake, 1974, p. 191ff] Nake used the ER language for example to create his series of Geradenscharen.
