<p>The EDVAC computer was the first modern, electronic stored-program computer to be designed. It was, however, never produced to the original plan. When eventually redesigned and constructed, it was unreliable and heavily modified. This article sets out the basic facts about the machine, the uses to which it was put, the software used in an attempt to ensure its reliable operation, and its eventual fate.</p>
