PDP-9 supervisory programs for the data-linkage to IBM 360/67 Ng, Nam


PDP-9 programs are provided for the inter-computer linkage of the PDP-9 in the Department of Electrical Engineering to the IBM 360/67 in the Computing Centre of the University of British Columbia. Details of the communication procedure used are described. Automatic error detection and recovery is incorporated to ensure correct message transmissions. A program "TRSFER" has been written to operate the PDP-9 as a conversational terminal to the IBM 360/67. It also allows file transfers between the two computers. Details of the data-phone handler routine and operation of the program "TRSFER" are given in the Appendix.
