Intersite Line Comparison Multiple Program Versions on the Same Node

      The Intersite Line Comparison system is designed to run
as a VM-based system connecting remote locations (independent VM
systems) through a master/shadow relationship of data exchange.

      It allows for the same program to run with different data
screens, data bases, and programming options on the same node or
single system image cluster.

      The system provides for a program to run with different user
sets that have different screen, data bases and programming options
on the same node or single system image cluster.  The system gets all
of the programs and screens from the same library but knows to access
different data bases for each application.  The first key point is
that the system determines if there is a likelihood of running
multiple programs on the SSI cluster or node.  If it is not possible,
then no choices are presented to the user.  If possible then the user
is asked to select an information network.  He is also told that he
can avoid the selection in the future if he enters the network
identifier as a parameter at program selection time.

      Once an information network is indicated, either consciously or
by system default, the network identifier is saved in a SESSION
GLOBALV variable.  The network identifier together with the node is
used as the key to start searching a master file to call in the
correct screens, data bases and program options.  The maste...
