Abstract: The PRO/Tool Kit contains all the RSX programming tools,
libraries and utilities you need for writing new
applications or for modifying existing RSX or VMS programs
to take advantage of the Professional's special features.
The PRO/Tool Kit along with one or more PRO/Tool Kit
Languages can be installed on any Professional with 10MB or
larger hard disk P/OS system, 20MB is recommended however.
After selecting the PRO/Tool Kit from the P/OS menu, you can write,
compile, task build, execute and debug programs directly on your
PDP-11. The Digital Command Language is the interface to the Tool Kit
utilities and languages. The PRO/Tool Kit includes software that lets
you develop fully distributed applications for the
PRO/DECnet environment. With this facility you can create
P/OS applications that access files on remote DECnet
systems, perform task-to-task communications and even bypass
the higher-level DECnet protocol to gain direct access to
the Ethernet circuit.
Some features include:
. RMS, FMS, SORT, GRAPHICS, PRO/GIDIS, FRAME DEVELOPMENT TOOL, P/OS
DCL commands include:
. APPEND, COPY, CREATE, DELETE, DIRECTORY, RENAME,
SUBMIT/REMOTE, SET HOST, SET PROTECTION, TYPE, BROADCAST, SHOW USERS
