Abstract

In Fig. 1 the hardware of device 5 provides an interface to the base program of a test system controller 6 to read read-only storage (ROS) data into the controller. In controller 6 the ROS data is compared to diskette data written to a diskette, printed by printer 8 or displayed on the CRT screen of workstation 9.

ROS Diskette Comparator and Diskette Builder

In Fig. 1 the hardware of device 5 provides an interface to the base program of a test system controller 6 to read read-only storage (ROS) data into the controller. In controller 6 the ROS data is compared to diskette data written to a diskette, printed by printer 8 or displayed on the CRT screen of workstation 9.

The flow chart of Fig. 2 illustrates the program that reads ROS data to create a diskette from a ROS installed in the test system and thereafter installed in the test system. This eliminates time in determining that such modules are identical to a standard device and to one another.
