RE: paper tapes: B-5500 CANDE Extended ALGOL program
Gary, et al,
Here's an idea... attach the simulator PTR device to a named pipe
(mkfifo). Then the user simply ftp puts to the named pipe and OLD PR:
into the simulator. Ftp puts to a named pipe work great... I think the
trick will be getting the PTR device to "reset" after each EOF.
Good idea. I think RSTS only supports one PP: device, but I
still use that one device. A command like "put xyz.txt"
uu-encoded data up to some ending bracket could be written to
PP:. That way
we could use PP: both for getting and putting files.
IBM's VM/CMS system does exactly this type of crazy stuff with
card punch and card reader. All e-mail on VM systems is sent as
card decks to the user's virtual card reader from the sender's
punch. (Hey that gives me an idea. We could create a RSTS
that sends and receives e-mail and attached files across the
punching and reading virtual paper tapes. You could then e-mail
BASIC-PLUS programs to your RSTS account and vice versa. What
:-). Is there anyone out there that understands Linux sendmail
and all its
