Abstract: The software package described in this document is a grade
keeping system developed at California State Polytechnic
University, Pomona. The package is written in the
BASIC-PLUS language running under the RSTS operating system
on a PDP-11/70 minicomputer.
This document is strictly written for an experienced
programmer to understand the foundation of the system in
order to be able to modify it, enhance it or eliminate
features from it.
The software is formed by different modules which perform a
function on a database stored in the computer memory. The
names of these modules and a short description of the
function that they perform are:
INIT Initializes the master file of one of three
different courses that the software can support.
ENTER Is the "main scheduler" program. This module is the
one that "calls" the different specialized modules to
perform their function on the database based on the
user's response to the main menu.
NAMES This program is run at the beginning of the quarter
to initialize the database for any of the three
SCORE This program is accessed whenever scores for an
evaluation are going to be entered.
PRINT This program will produce a hard copy printout of a
CORET This module is used to correct any kind of data that
is found to be wrong in the students' records.
Notes: This program has been tested only on RSTS/E versions 7.2 and
Restrictions: Limited to three sections (courses) of enrollment of 300
each or less.
Documentation available in hardcopy only.
