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.
