Abstract: This program serves as a communications interface
between a PDP-11 and General Electric Company's Mark III
Foreground Service currently available via telephone
throughout the world. Operating at a nominal 300 baud,
this program allows your local data processing
capabilties to be used in conjunction with the G.E.
service, thereby reducing your hourly cost, character
transmission fees and file storage charges. These
savings are realized through off-line input file
building, editing and storage. You will be able to edit
or reformat your output data before hard copy and
relocate some of the smaller data processing tasks to
your equipment.
This version of the TSTE program supports on line device
and file specification, has hardware independent
terminal echo for all transactions and provides user
messages and prompts to indicate program status.
The concept and methods of this program could be applied
to any time-share service with minor changes to allow
for communications protocol. The coding affected is
documented in the source file.
