Abstract: TERM is written in FORTRAN to convert a PDP-11/23
with a DLV-11J Quad Serial Interface into a smart terminal.
The program allows the PDP-11/23 console terminal to converse with
a remote computer. Disk files on the PDP-11/23 may be accessed as
either sources or sinks for ASCII data files. File transfer
is limited to ASCII files and is not automatically checked
for errors, but is quite reliable at speeds up to 2400 baud.
(A second speed limitation is that the remote computer baud
rate must be slower than the PDP-11/23 console terminal rate,
9600 baud at this installation.) TERM is sufficiently
transparent to the user to allow editing operations on the
remote computer, e.g. VAX/VMS EDT using VT100 or VT200
terminal support. For possible use with a remote VAX, a VMS
file TERM.COM is also provided to facilitate file transfer.
Further details are in the file TERM.DOC and as comments in
Notes: Operating system RT-11 V5.0 or higher is required.
Changes and Improvements: Control Z from either the terminal or the
remote host stops all file transfer.
Restrictions: Console terminal baud rate must be faster than "Modem"
(connected to remote
host) baud rate.
