Abstract: COM is a two part package that runs under RT-11 and
TSX-PLUS to support communications and source file
transfer between an RT-11 environment and VMS. The first
part of the package is a FORTRAN program to support the
communications protocol. The intent of this part of the
package is to provide a communication framework that can
be easily understood by anyone wishing to modify the
protocol for other applications. The second part of the
package is a special RT-11 driver written in MACRO to
support modem communications at the system level. The
driver has a large buffer for text coming from VMS and
uses XON/XOFF protocol with VMS to manage the buffer.
Media (Service Charge Code): One RX01 Diskette (KA)  Format: RT-11,
600' Magnetic Tape (MA)  Format: RT-11
