Abstract: ECR is an intelligent monitor console routine.  It is an
enhancement to the AUX program as originally written by
Robin Miller for operation on RSX-11.
Following is a brief summary of highlights:
. The last twenty command lines can be recalled and edited.
. Often used commands are defined by numeric keypad keys.
. Up to 48 command line numbers can be defined.  Typical
  uses for these would be to define a command that expands:
    KEF NAME          to           KED NAME.FOR
    FOR NAME          to           F77 NAME,NAME/-SP/CR=NAME
    LINK NAME         to           TKB @NAME.CMD
. A default file name option lets ECR remember the last
  name used and use it again if no name is given in the
  command.  This would further reduce the commands required to
  edit, compile and link a FORTRAN program to the following:
Included is the program QUOTE.  This is a cookie/dammit program that
provides notable quotations.
Restrictions: Operating System IAS V3.1 or later is required.
