Abstract: CB is a very versatile program running in 2K of user
space that will allow any users on the system to
communicate with each other as they would on a citizen's
band radio.
A 'Talk' Channel is used to send messages to anyone
currently 'monitoring' that channel. A user may monitor
any or all of the 40 'channels' available, but may only
talk on one. Note that channel 40 is a privileged-only
channel and may not be used by non-privileged users.
Commands are defined to allow the user to change talk
channels, monitor and unmonitor channels, list users by
user or by channel, set 'restricted' messages that will
only be received if the sender and receiver (or
receivers) have the same password set, etc. A user may
even execute system commands while still in CB through
the use of a FG/BG (foreground/background) arrangement.
Notes: CB will not execute correctly on systems before RSTS
V7.0 because shared resident library support is
required. All files are supplied to generate CB for BP2
V1.6 or BP2 V2.X. All V1.6 files have 'V16' in their
Media (Service Charge Code): 600' Magnetic Tape (MA)  Format: DOS-11
