Abstract

One of the problems associated with the advent of a new processor is the transfer of files from the old to the new. A relatively simple program is written to permit the two machines to communicate through RS 232C ports. The program allows both the sending and receiving operators to send/receive a single file, or queue up a number of files. The sending processor's file identifiers are independent of the receiving processor's identifiers. Operator intervention is required only to set up the sending and receiving routines, thereby freeing the operators for other duties during the actual transfer of files. The flow chart illustrates the procedure in transferring multiple files between a pair of processors. Either processor can be the sender or receiver. The steps in the flow chart are self-explanatory.

Transferring Single/Multiple Files Between Processors

One of the problems associated with the advent of a new processor is the transfer of files from the old to the new. A relatively simple program is written to permit the two machines to communicate through RS 232C ports. The program allows both the sending and receiving operators to send/receive a single file, or queue up a number of files. The sending processor's file identifiers are independent of the receiving processor's identifiers. Operator intervention is required only to set up the sending and receiving routines, thereby freeing the operators for other duties during the actual transfer of files. The flow chart illustrates the procedure in transferring multiple files between a pair of processors. Either processor can be the sender or receiver. The steps in the flow chart are self-explanatory. It should be noted that the "wait" step is set up to insure conventional synchronization between the sender and receiver.
