CP/M (Control Program for Microcomputers) is an operating system originally created for Intel 8080/Intel 8085 based microcomputers by Gary Kildall of Digital Research, Inc. Initially confined to single tasking on 8-bit processors and no more than 64 kilobytes (64 KiB) of memory, later versions of CP/M added multi-user variations, and were migrated to 16-bit processors.

The combination of CP/M and S-100 bus computers patterned on the Altair 8800 was an early "industry standard" for microcomputers, and was widely used through the late 1970s and into the mid-'80s. By greatly reducing the amount of programming required to install an application on a new manufacturer's computer, CP/M increased the market size for both hardware and software.
