- ItemIBM360 and NOVA software developed to allow plotter output to be displayed on the Tektronix T4002 graphical display terminal(Australian Atomic Energy Commission, 1973-06) Backstrom, RP; Sanger, PLThe interaction of IBM360 programs with the Tektronix T4002 Graphical Display terminal attached to the NOVA computer is described. These interactive facilities are used to allow plotter output from the IBM360 computer to be displayed on the Tektronix Display Screen. Arbitrary sections of plots may be enlarged to any desired magnification for detailed viewing without the traditional 'wrap-around' problem. This application is the first example of interactive computing using the AAEC Network and demonstrates the effectiveness of both the hardware and the software involved.
- ItemIBM360 and NOVA software developed to give the NOVA computer access to the resources of the IBM360 computer(Australian Atomic Energy commission, 1973-06) Sanger, PL; Backstrom, RPIBM360 and NOVA software to allow NOVA programs stored as load modules on IBM360 disk storage to be loaded directly into the NOVA computer via the Dataway, and to allow the contents of NOVA core storage to be sent to the IBM360 computer and listed on the IBM1403 line printer, is described. This software can be used as the basis for the development of software to allow other Dataway computers to access the IBM360 computer. A scheme for adding interactive programs to the normal IBM360 Jobstream by writing the necessary JCL and SYSIN data to the HASP internal reader is also presented.
- ItemA magnetic tape analysis and copying program, AECOPY, modified for IBM360/370 computers(Australian Atomic Energy Commission, 1982-03) Backstrom, RPThe program AECOPY can be used to inspect and copy IBM360/370 magnetic tapes. The number and length of physical records on the tape and actual records may be printed, and a number of other typical magnetic tape operations performed. The record characteristics and format of input tapes need not be known beforehand, and the type of error handling required may be specified by the user. Input to AECOPY may also be given in free form English from a batch job submitted by the user or by the operator at the computer console.
- ItemPDPGENER - an IBM/360 program to reconstruct symbolic source listings from PDP-9/L object code(Australian Atomic Energy Commission, 1970-09) Backstrom, RPPDPGENER~enables the user to generate original program listings and source decks from machine readable PDP-9/L computer object code in either card or paper tape form. The reconstructed listings contain alphanumeric labelling and complete cross reference tables. PDPGENER may also be used to update and punch new card object decks from card or paper tape input, thus eliminating slow paper tape input to the PDP-9/L. Users of other small computers may also edit object decks by specifying the object card format to PDPGENER.
- ItemReactors, mathematics and computers summer school(Australian Atomic Energy Commision, 1975-01) Backstrom, RP; Barry, JM; Clancy, BE; Gilbert, CP; McCulloch, DBChapter 1 - Physics of reactor kinetics, Chapter 2 - Mathematics of reactors, Chapter 3 - ACL - programming, Chapter 4 - Loading and saving ACL programs on IBM360 disk storage, Chapter 5 - Analogue and hybrid computers.
- ItemSoftware implementation of the knapsack public key cryptographic system(Australian Atomic Energy Commission, 1981-12) Davidson, MR; Backstrom, RPA software implementation of the Merkle and Hellman public key crytographic system is described. The corresponding subroutines KEYGEN, ENCRYPT, DECRYPT are designed for convenient use on the AAEC central computer and provide the means for more secure disk storage of data.
