Operating System: RSX-11M V4.1D  Source Language: MACRO-11  Memory

Abstract: This program is primarily designed for operations on text
and includes the following options:
. Converts files between fixed and variable length records
. Converts carriage control types (FORTRAN, LIST, and NONE)
. Converts between 8 column tabs and spaces
. Truncates or padds records
. Removes trailing blanks and tabs from records
. Selects a range of pages for output
. Compresses (or restores) records
The compression algorithm is based on repeat characters, and is
therefore especially effective on reducing the storage required
for files which contain significant amounts of filler (spaces)
or nulls.
The program was written in MACRO-11 and uses large buffers for
efficient processing.
Restrictions: Carriage control conversion from FORTRAN to LIST does
not support
