Abstract: ORC is a utility which converts PDP-11 object code to
MACRO-11. Its uses include:
. Checking code produced by compilers
. On-line debugging of code produced by a compiler which
  does not give an assembly listing (e.g. CORAL)
For ORC to produce sensible output, the object code
should have data and instructions in separate program
sections. The object code produced by the CORAL and F4P
compilers satisfy this requirement. The threaded code
produced by the FORTRAN compiler (FOR) is not suitable
for conversion to MACRO-11.
The MACRO-11 code produced by ORC can be assembled in
the usual way to produce an assembly listing.
Notes: Limits on on-core tables. Maximum of 26 program sections
per object module. Limits on label and symbol tables
can be increased at task build time, making the task
Media (Service Charge Code): Write-Up (AA), One RX01 Diskette (KA)
