[Help for TO10] TO10 is a cheap program which will accept characters from a smart terminal, and store them in an ASCII disk file on the DEC-10. This program sets your terminal line to no-echo status, and will pass all characters, including control characters, to the file. TO10 should work at any BAUD rate, provided your terminal is smart enough to stop sending when it receives a ^S from the DEC-10 and start sending again when it receives a ^Q. These characters correspond to "tape-off" and "tape-on" on a teletype. To use the program, type: .R TO10 ------ then type the name of the file you wish to create on the DEC-10: File to Create ? FOOBAZ.TXT ---------- TO10 will now ask if you wish a Linefeed to be added after any occurance of a Carriage Return: Auto on ? [N]: Y --- Next, you will be asked if your smart terminal is operating in what is know as a "Reply-to-Send" mode: Where the information is sent to the DEC-10 a Line at a time, followed by a "STOP" Character. The terminal will then send nothing more until the DEC-10 sends it a "START" Character, after which the terminal sends the second record followed again by a "STOP" character, and so on. These "START" and "STOP" characters are user defined, and prompted for if you request Reply-to-send mode. In the example below a Carriage Return (ASCII Code 15) is the STOP character, and a Line Feed (ASCII code 12) is the START character: Reply-to-Send Mode ? [N]: Y --- Octal ASCII code for STOP character: 15 -- Octal ASCII code for START character: 12 -- After answering all of the above questions, TO10 will wait forever for your first input. Do whatever you have to do to get your terminal to send what you want. When your terminal is finished sending, just wait about ten seconds and the TO10 program should type EXIT and finish. While TO10 is waiting for your first input after the file name, if you decide to get out of the program, you must type at least one character to wake up the program because it will wait forever for your first character. After you have typed a character, just wait the ten seconds, and TO10 will exit. Questions to George, 3-9275. .KJOB .
