Abstract

In a keyboard display, an overall software system therefore including CRT scrolling with dynamic memory allocation and an address sensing scheme to save time in polling multiple keyboard/display stations- In particular, the dynamic memory allocation described is a software procedure which allows the host computer to assign CRT display memory buffers in the terminal controller having a keyboard/display. Thus, it optimizes the available buffer for a particular application-
