Dynamically Loadable Object Identifier to Alert Code Point Mappings

      Disclosed is a method for creating mappings from object
identifiers to equivalent SNA/MS Generic Alert code points, which can
be dynamically loaded and used by programs implementing the technique
to map OSI Alarms to SNA/MS major vectors.

      The first step in this method is to define the object
identifier to code point mappings in human readable character files.
Code points have been defined which correspond to the OSI
standards-defined object identifiers.  Object identifiers have also
been defined which correspond to a few types of SNA/MS Generic Alert
code points.  This method supports these defined mappings as well as
end-user defined OI to code point mappings.

      The second step is to run the object identifier to code point
compiler program.  The compiler takes one or more character input
files mapping object identifiers to code points, performs syntax
checking on the input files, and if no errors are found, generates
one output file representing all the object identifier to code point
mappings.  The compiler also has an option to only perform syntax
checking on the input files.  The compiler runs independently from
programs implementing the Alarm to major vector mapping technique.

      In the final step, programs implementing the Alarm to major
vector mapping technique read the mappings in the output files
produced by the compiler and build a corresponding search tr...
