In a multiprocessor system, a source of description is provided in a unique work area assigned to each user program or process that references data and program stored in memory. Each description includes a first field defining the structure and format of the data, a second field specifying the location of the objects, the size of the object and any limits imposed, and a third field for controlling access and governing the data usage. Also included in each description are operating system flags which cause an operating system function to be executed at the microprogram level. Individual instructions of an instruction set for the multiprocessing system are executed with descriptions which interpret the instruction, executes the indicated instruction operation as defined by the fields of description, and may call for the next instruction.
