110736 DV: Virtual Device Handler for RT-11 Version: January 1987
Submitted by: R. Tapp, University of Victoria, Victoria, B.C., Canada
Operating System: RT-11 V4.00 or 5.01 Source Language: MACRO-11
Memory Required: 32KB Software Required: Includes a companion server
program for a VAX/VMS version 4.4 host with both .PAS PASCAL version
3.4 and .OBJ files, but this must be customized for other host
operating systems. Keywords: Data Communications, Device Handlers
Abstract: A patch for the RT-11 file DD.MAC creates the source file
for a new device handler DV that can access virtual devices
on a host computer using a standard serial terminal line.
These virtual devices can be used either for file
communication with the host system or as backup storage for
RT-11 files. Included are an RT-11 terminal emulator
program for establishing communication with the host system,
a stand-alone bootstrap loader program for DV, and a set of
server programs for a VAX/VMS host that support
virtual devices compatible with the VMS EXCHANGE utility
and emulate TU58, RK05, RL01, RX01 and RX02 devices.
Notes: Supplied patches require RT-11 version 4.00 or 5.01 source
versions may not be compatible.
Changes and Improvements: Runs under RT-11 version 5.01 as well as
version 4.00. Problem with RT-11
extended memory code has been fixed.
