Turing "founded" ``International Tape Machines" ( ITM ), but
he left no programmer's manual ...

As far as I know, the user interprets what the symbols
should mean. In practice, it's probably better
to work with "Blank" symbol, and maybe some
subset of printable ASCII symbols, though I don't
think people have seriously programmed Turing Tape
machines.

Usually, the input is thought of as all given
on the tape before running the machine.
