The experiment reported in this paper is a study directed at environment. The experiment involved interpretative execution of selected programs to obtain a time sequence of page references for various page sizes, and subsequent simulation based on these statistics to determine the variation in the programs' paging behavior with the amount of real memory allocated under the discipline of two separate replacement algorithms. Although the authors state that the experiment involved four different programs, only the results for one of these, the SNOBOL compiler, are discussed at length in the paper. One other program is covered in a single paragraph and the other two are not included at all because, the authors explain, the results obtained were similar to the SNOBOL case.
