Abstract: The card reader monitor package is a package consisting
of three files:
READER.BAS is a program which runs detached and monitors
the card reader at 10 second intervals. In addition,
READER.BAS includes 4 modes of processing: queueing of
control files, creation of files anywhere on the system
disk, listing of cards on the line printer, and a
special feature which allows the user to disable the
reader program for 60 seconds to allow the user to use
the card reader for his/her own applications (I.E.
'PIP', 'RUN CR:', ETC.).
SENDER.BAS allows the system manager to communicate with
the reader program while it is online to either shutdown
the reader program, suspend the reader program for a
period of time, change the message console, or resume
reader operations after a suspend command was issued.
READER.DOC contains complete documentation necessary to
use the package.
