Abstract

Described is a computer system that can control a single machine or n number of identical machines, such as electronic device testers, with a small increase in memory. The n machines perform essentially the same function, or process. The computer system employs interrupt system architecture and control block oriented software. The language used by the control program includes a macroassembler with a macrolibrary that is relocatable.

Reentrant Event Driven Process Control

Described is a computer system that can control a single machine or n number of identical machines, such as electronic device testers, with a small increase in memory. The n machines perform essentially the same function, or process. The computer system employs interrupt system architecture and control block oriented software. The language used by the control program includes a macroassembler with a macrolibrary that is relocatable.

In this reentrant method, one computer system memory controls n machines (Fig. 1). Fig. 2 depicts a reentrancy monitor for monitoring the n machines activities, a time sharing monitor for timing the activities of each of the n machines, a reentrant executive program for programming the n machines, and a data base for each machine.
