Abstract: TA.MAC is a general purpose handler for extra terminals,
graphics devices, and modems. Handler can be used with
standard SYSGEN files including memory management and
non-memory management options. Standard terminal SET
commands include: PAGE/NOPAGE and SCOPE/NOSCOPE. Also,
an ECHO/NOECHO SET command is included for some remote
computer I/O where an echo is unwanted. The handler will
exit a "paged" state if a control-C is typed from
the console terminal. Instructions are included for
writing additional handlers which can run concurrently
with TA.MAC and have the same operated characteristics.
Details on use with FORTRAN programs are included. Also,
FORTRAN compatibility is enhanced by eliminating the
delays usually involved with the necessary REWIND
commands. Instructions are included for use with
foreground/background monitor in the foreground.
