110396 DXEBSC: Floppy Disk Utility Version: November 1979
Submitted by: Malcolm C. Maddy, Libbey-Owens-Ford Technical Center,
Operating System: RSX-11M V2.0 min. Source Language: MACRO-11
Hardware Required: RX01 or RX02 Keywords: Conversions, IBM, Utilities
Abstract: DXEBSC is an RSX-11 task that can read sectors of text
from a single density, one-sided floppy written by an
IBM machine. It converts the EBCIDIC to ASCII and
transfers the resulting text via FILES-11 to wherever
the user chooses. The user specifies the sequential
sectors to be read from the floppy disk. The sources for
two tabbing editors are included: RETAB for Assembler
source text, and FTEDIT for FORTRAN source text.
Notes: DXEBSC will produce variable length format records even
when, in fact, the records are of fixed length. Assembly
requires a macro library whose macros in source form are
included. IO.SEC, used by device DY:, will come up
undefined under V2.0. That should be of no consequence.
INFO.TXT on the floppy contains suggestions for getting
the modules assembled and the tasks built.
