Ho's Algorithm is reviewed and demonstrated with analytic examples. A digital computer program is developed to implement the algorithm for single-input, single-output systems and used to identify linear continuous and stationary systems which are driven with a unit step as the test input. Discrete realization of the continuous systems is obtained using the measured output-samples, to a step input, directly in the algorithm.
