Re: paper tapes: B-5500 CANDE Extended ALGOL program

How about writing commands to PP1:?
Then you could tell it to send the output for PP:
to a disk file that you could FTP back from
the simulator host.  (Or does it already do that?)
(Will RSTS support 2 PPs?  If not, a reserved TT: could be used.)
