customization is needed. Keywords: Device Handlers, Spell, Text
Formatting, Utilities - RT-11
Abstract: This is a potpourri of programs written for RT-11 V5.1 or
later (except where noted) on a PRO. The following have
PL A pipeline handler which functions in much
the same way as MQ: except that no special
.LOOKUP requests are needed.
CI A console interface which allows one job to
'type' input to another.
MENU A suite of rather crude menu control
TYPO A typographical error checker written in NBS
MORE A file perusal utility written in NBS
OTHER A program which determines which drive (0 or
1) RT is booted from and assigns logical
names to it (SYS) and the other drive (DK
WP A program utilizing all the above to allow
the creation of a cheap but effective text
formatting system using KED and RUNOFF (you
have to provide your own KED and RUNOFF).
DZCOPY Program to make a sector by sector image of
a foreign disk by using the DZ controller
hardware. Has been used to read IBM
format 5.25 inch disks.
XHANDL An alternative overlay handler which can
force large root segments and large overlay
tables into extended memory. Moved code to
allow for .module code.
PRTSCR A screen dump utility. It can be customized
for non-Digital Equipment Corporation
printers, requires less low memory than the
SPOOL utility, and can dump in text or
graphics mode, but requires V5.02.
Note that some programs may require a little experience with
RT and MACRO to customize, but should be fairly easy to put
Changes and Improvements: Bug fix to XHANDL.
