Abstract: The RSTS/E-2780 software emulates the communications
protocol of an IBM 2780 device, while running as a user job
on a suitably configured RSTS/E system.
The RSTS/E-2780 transmits files stored on any medium
supported by the RSTS/E Operating System. It stores files
on any output medium supported by RSTS/E except DECtape.
Magnetic tape operation can cause timeout errors, unless the
tape is positioned at the start of the file when
transmission or reception is about to begin. Files can be
printed directly on any line printer supported by the host
RSTS/E supports a spooling feature that allows users running
with the RSTS/E-2780 to queue one or more files for
The processing requirements of the 2780 protocol can
perceptibly degrade RSTS/E response time during transmission
