It is usually essential for the system operation. Examples of basic software are executive and operating systems, diagnostic programs, compilers, assemblers, utility routines such as sort-merge and input or output conversion routines, file management programs, and data management programs. Data management programs are commonly linked to or under the control of the executive or operating system programs. (AFR 205-16;)
