Setun was the first[edit]

Setun was the first (and only) ternary computer on the World. It was built at 1958. in Kazan (SSSR, USSR on English) by Nikolay Brusentsov, Soviet war hero. Setun used ternary logic (digits were -1, 0, 1). At 1960. there was enough programs for Setun that it can be tested. There were built 50 of them. I hope I helped somebody. Salut komrads!

Except for Thomas Fowlers machine from the 1840's. FrederikHertzum 09:11, 8 October 2007 (UTC)

Wow[edit]

I find the Setun extremely interesting, and hope somebody would expand the information available. It would be nice to know the memory organization, word size, instruction set, etc. --Pezezin 00:21, 12 June 2006 (UTC)

There do seem to be a large number of sources that at least mention the computer: [1]. The first source on that list (Computing in Russia) has four pages of coverage on Setun, which are viewable in the Google Books preview. Iknowyourider (t c) 15:12, 21 July 2007 (UTC)

Merger proposed (DSSP (programming))[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section.

The result was: Merge DSSP (programming) into Setun. --B. Wolterding 11:00, 25 July 2007 (UTC)


I propose to merge the content of DSSP (programming) into here, since this was suggested on the article's talk page, contesting its proposed deletion. Actually, there is currently not much evidence that DSSP is notable as a separate toipic, so it could either be merged here or deleted.

Please add your comments below. Proposed as part of the Notability wikiproject. --B. Wolterding 07:50, 20 July 2007 (UTC)

I agree 100%. The interesting stuff about DSSP is that it is like FORTH for the ternary machine Setun, the latter two being very notable in the world of computing. Said: Rursus 08:03, 21 July 2007 (UTC)
Agree with merger. Iknowyourider (t c) 15:09, 21 July 2007 (UTC)

Ternary bits == ternary binary digits?[edit]

Hi,

The article defines "trits" with the term "ternary bits" which translates to the nonsensical "ternary binary digits". Would it be better to change "ternary bits" to "ternary digits"?
