Abstract: KERMIT is a protocal originally developed at Columbia
University which has been used to implement error free
packet file transfer and communications between computer
systems, both mainframe to mainframe and micro to mainframe.
This KERMIT-11 was developed by the author for RSTS/E,
RSX-11M-PLUS, RSX-11M and RT-11.
KERMIT-11 will run on RSX-11M version 4.0 and RSTS/E version
7.2 as long as the task was built without RMSRES. To be
able to build KERMIT on RSTS/E version 7.2 or RSX-11
version 4.0, you will have to get RMSLIB.OLB and MAC.TSK and
RSX-11M V4.1 or RSTS/E V8.0. The need for version 2 of
RMSLIB is due to the use of $SEARCH, $PARSE, $RENAME and
$DELETE. The need for the newest MAC.TSK is due to the use
of new directives such as .SAVE, .RESTORE and
