- ItemAAEC computer network access to ACL-NOVA facilities(Australian Atomic Energy Commission, 1982-03) Sanger, PLA number of terminals supported by the NOVA computer-based DATERCOM systems are given access to ACL-NOVA, the IBM3031 central computer and other resources of the AAEC computer network at Lucas Heights. Some of the other Dataway computers provide their own terminals with the same ACL and non-ACL mode support by communicating with DATERCOM, using a restricted set of Dataway sequences to communicate with DATERCOM for ACL mode support. The extension to DATERCOM provides an even better use of Dataway resources by giving ACL mode support to terminals of Dataway computers that only provide non-ACL mode access to the resources of the computer network.
- ItemAAEC facilities to aid in the development of FORTRAN programs(Australian Atomic Energy Commission, 1974-06) Johnson, SG; Sanger, PLTwo subroutines, DBGON and DBGOFF, designed to give users more control over the debug options supplied with the IBM360 FORTRAN IV [G] compiler are described. Examples of the use of these subroutines in the debugging of a FORTRAN program are presented. Macros developed to simulate FORTRAN I/O in Assembler programs are also described, and their value to programmers converting FORTRAN programs into Assembler language routines is demonstrated.
- ItemACL:NOVA: a multi-user conversational interpreter for the NOVA computer(Australian Atomic Energy Commission, 1972-04) Sanger, PLA multi-user conversational interpreter for the NOVA computer is described. A new conversational language ACL, on which the interpreter is based, is also described. The interpreter uses the first 63/4K of a 12K NOVA computer and provides a very flexible arrangement for supporting a number of teletype terminals. The ACL-NOVA system provides a powerful conversational computing facility for many users in a time sharing environment.
- ItemComputer network access to the PYRAMID 90X computer at Lucas Heights(Australian Atomic Energy Commission, 1985-06) Sanger, PLA new system, INTERNET, has been developed for the MicroEclipse Computer. It provides computer network terminal access to the PYRAMID 90X computer, and hence to the Berkeley and AT&T UNIX facilities. INTERNET takes over the support for auto-answer modems, and includes a version of ACL-NOVA in the MicroEclipse computer.
- ItemA directed-graph syntax analyser for the ACL-NOVA system.(Australian Atomic Energy Commission, 1974-05) Sanger, PL; Hayes, IJThe syntax of the ACL language is described in terms of a directed-graph structure which is written in a machine independent language and automatically translated to NOVA assembly language. A syntax analyser based on this directed-graph structure is incorporated into a new version of the ACL-NOVA system to improve the response to terminal input and this, together with a number of other modifications, reduces the size of the system from 6¾K to under 6K words.
- 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.
- ItemInteractive computing. Reactor physics, mathematics and computers summer school, January 1972(Australian Atomic Energy Commission, 1972-01) Sanger, PLThe advantages of interactive computing are discussed by comparing the solution of a mathematical problem in Fortran with its solution using the interactive ACL-NOVA system. the ACL-NOVA system is based on the new language ACL, the most important features of which are presented here.
- ItemA mathematician's computer study of the reactor MOATA(Australian Atomic Energy Commission, 1974-01) Barry, JM; Clancy, BE; Gilbert, CP; McCulloch, DB; Pollard, JP; Sanger, PLThese notes collect together lectures on analysis of time dependent (kinetics) experiments on the reactor MOATA. The student will be introduced to scientific problem solving through the kinetics study and he will use mathematics and computers in his analysis in much the same way as a research scientist (although on a somewhat reduced scale).
- ItemNOVASM and NOVASIM - an assembler and a simulator for the NOVA and SUPERNOVA computers written to run on an IBM 360 computer(Australian Atomic Energy Commission, 1970-09) Sanger, PLAn assembler, NOVASM, and a simulator, NOVASIM, for the NOVA and SUPERNOVA computers are described. Both programs are written in IBM 360 assembler language and can be run on any size IBM 360 computer operating under OS/360. Their combined use provides a fast and convenient way of preparing and debugging machine language programs for the NOVA and SUPERNOVA computers.
- ItemProgramming the nova computer for dataway communication(Australian Atomic Energy Commission, 1973-08) Sanger, PL; Jones, CG; Ellis, PJA general discussion of Dataway communication is presented followed by a description of the program sequences required to allow the NOVA computer to communicate with other computers on the Dataway. The Dataway sequences required to service terminals attached to the Dataway via Remote Teleprinter Interfaces are described. NOVA software developed to test the Dataway hardware is also described. The material presented here forms a basis for understanding Dataway communication and has proved invaluable for developing a new version of the ACL-NOVA system to support terminals attached to the Dataway via Remote Teleprinter Interfaces and to provide terminal users access to IBM360 disk storage.
- ItemRemote terminal access to AAEC computer network facilities(Australian Atomic Energy Commission, 1980-07) Sanger, PLInstallation of a MICRONOVA computer and four automatic answering modem lines supported by the MICRONET system has significantly improved remote terminal access to AAEC computer network facilities. This report describes the development of the MICRONET systems and the use of a novel combination of Dataway sequences to provide ACL-NOVA and non-ACL mode support.
- ItemSpecial programs, (IPLTEXT and AEBOOTØ1) for the development and use of stand-alone programs for the IBM 360 computer(Australian Atomic Energy Commission, 1970-08) Sanger, PLA special [PL disk program, IPLTEXT, and a stand-alone program, AEBOOTØ1, are described. Their combined use provides a powerful way of developing and running stand-alone programs. Both programs can be used on any IBM 360 computer that normally operates under OS/360. A stand-alone program can be assembled and put onto disk in load-module form as a member of a partitioned data set by using standard IBM 360 Job Control Language. By specifying the appropriate DSNAME and member name using the computer console typewriter, this stand-alone program may subsequently be executed by loading it into core storage under the control of the IPLTEXT-AEBOOTØ1 system.
- ItemTerminal facilities provided by the DATERCOM system(Australian Atomic Energy Commission., 1977-04) Sanger, PLThe computer network at the Australian Atomic Energy Commission Research Establishment is currently based on an IBM360 model 65 central computer, a DEC PDP9L computer linked to the I BM360 computer via a selector channel, and nine minicomputer systems I inked to the PDP9L computer via the AAEC Dataway. The Dataway Terminal Communication System, DATERCOM, developed for DGC NOVA computers makes use of the computer network facilities to allow terminals to have access either to the multi-user conversational interpreter ACL-NOVA or to the resources of the IBM360 central computer system. The features of DATERCOM in terms of the facilities made available to the terminal user are described here; they greatly expand the computing power that can be made available to AAEC scientists.
