A Winchester disk assembly (photo by courtesy of NEe Business Systems (Europe) Ltd) 37 rigid disk pack, and need be no larger than a standard floppy disk drive. It can therefore be contained within a separate unit and connected to the central processor by cables or, as is more usually the case, actually built into the machine. In some cases the Winchester disk pack is offered as an alternative to one or more floppy disk drives, thereby increasing the storage capacity of a system, Diode laser disks These are now familiar in the home entertainments field as the silver Laservision disks upon which video programmes are recorded for playback through the television.

Depending upon national custom, a decimal point may be shown as a point, or as a comma. Similarly a thousands separator may be specified as a point, comma, space or not at all. A zero indicator may be 0, 00, Zero, NIL or otherwise as specified by an operator. All of these variations must be catered for if the arithmetics program is to be of value in as many different kinds of application as possible. In order to cater for these various requirements, there is built into a maths program a ' profile' which specifies how all of these things are to be carried out or represented.
