IBM360 and NOVA software developed to allow plotter output to be displayed on the Tektronix T4002 graphical display terminal
Australian Atomic Energy Commission
The 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.
