I'm trying to figure out year when the term "program" was firstly used is the meaning ‘series of coded instructions which directs a computer in carrying out a specific task’.
Additionally I need book/paper/essay where I can read this definition.
Let me explain. For example here https://www.etymonline.com/word/program said that it happed in 1945, but without any proofs or document names.
On the other hand in 1947 document "Planning and Coding Problems for an Electronic Computing Instrument, Part 1" by H. Goldstine and J. von Neumann. They stated:
We call the coded sequence of a problem a routine
So not a program, but a routine.
Moreover in 1949 at the Cambridge conference, David Wheeler (EDSAC designer) wrote:
A PROGRAMME is a flowchart showing the operations (in block form) corresponding to the action of the calculator during the solution of the problem.
A ROUTINE is the programme written in the detailed code of a particular machine.
Again it is routine not a program.
So I can not find any proofs from 1945, 1947, and 1949 that term program means ‘series of coded instructions which directs a computer in carrying out a specific task’
