Abstract: Reese's Pieces is a collection of programs that are used at
Michael Reese mostly as operational aids. Some are
enhancements or additions to IAS functions, some are RSX-11M
programs updated to operate under IAS, some are just fun.
Following is a brief summary of highlights:
[1,10] Lots of programs, a catchall account.
[1,12] The INForm package, updated for version 3.2.
[1,16] DUPLEX and XMIT, updated for IAS (term
[1,22] BRU and DSC tape directory pgms, unknown
tape listers, tape copy programs, our
on-line ROLLIN image mode disk save pgms.
[1,25] COOKIE, DAMMIT, HEADACHE, MURPHY and MAY,
smart remark pgms.
[1,26] Programs to list the external page, software
used to generate bootstrap roms for non
standard device addresses.
[1,30] Programs to help you patch disks, examine
FCS file structures, show disk activity,
recover lost files, show file attributes.
[1,31] Screen based clock, and system display.
[1,32] An RSX mail program, updated to run on IAS,
(Uses Reese style login info, but could be
adopted to regular IAS.)
[1,40] Program to list current FCB's in use.
[1,2] MRH HELP, help modified to use multiple help
files, instead of one large file, so its
faster. For a command of AID ZAP, help
first tries to use ZAP.HLP, then defaults to
[1,6] Much of the documentation for packages in
Reese's Pieces errors, aids to process error
logging reports, and some simple on-line
[11,13] Contains the sources to HEL, BYE, etc. that
were developed to let an MCR based system use
the protection features of a PDX system.
Passwords, etc. are in the user profile
file, with a modified version of the
protection code. Also has same login for
batch. (Modified task image of pdx is
included.) Also includes a catchall task
that does some one-line DCL style commands,
[1,100] *.sys Basic programs used to update the
user profile file.
*.bas Programs to aid in logging,
pdsupf.vir A virgin file, with only SYSTEM
and SCITERMINAL autostart.dat command file
for autostarting selected users. Note that
we still use an older format of the
[351,70] Contains VTL, a VT100 terminal listing
program, commands like KED, options for
viewing two files, lots more.
[351,72] VAX style directory command, short version
with multiple entries per line, full version
with all file attributes.
[351,73] ECR, Editing MCR. MCR with command line
editing, much more.
