Abstract

The software developed by the Computing Center staff for the operation of the high-speed processor computer can be described as a multiprogramming supervisor that handles a number of resident, reentrant programs. Among them is a large subsystem, called MTS (Michigan Terminal Svs em), for command interpretation, execution control, file management, and accounting maintenance. Most users interact with the computer's resources through MTS. The MTS Mar.ual is a series of volumes that, when completed, will describe in detail the facilities provided by the Michigan Terminal System. Administrative policies of the Computing Center and the physical facilities provided are described in a separate publication entitled In.r_ _~'i_n_.o_ h _Comp_t_ng_C`eBte_. Ihe MTS volumes now in print are listed below. The date indicates the mos' recent edition of each volume; however, since volumes are updated by means of CCMemos, users should check the Memo list, copy the file *MISVCLUME'S, or watch for announcements in the Newslette-, to ensure that their MTS volumes are up to date. I Volume 1: Ih _Michiq_B_Iermip_l_Syst_m, October 1978 I Volume 2: Publ __F le_Descripti_B_, December 1978 I Volume 3: Sys_em_S_ ~ou_ine_Des__ pti_Bs, October 1976 I Volume 4: ~ rminal__a ___apes, August 1974 i Volume 5: Syst m_Se-vi__s, June 1976 I Volume 6: FOfiTFaN_in_MTS, December 1978 I Volume 7: PL/I_in_MTS, July 1977 I Volume 8: LISP__n___LIP_ n_MI_, June 1976 I Volume 9: SNOBOL4 i__MTS, September 1975 I Volume 10: BAST___ _ MTS, September 1974 I Volume 11: Pl_+__ s_rlp+__ _Sys __, August 1978 I.....Volume 12: PILl2__n MTS, December 1974 I.....Volume 14: <6373_0_A_sem le~s_i_ MTS, Augus+ 1978 I.....Volume 15: vORM_T _d TEXT3_3, April 1977 I Volume 16: ALGOL ~ i__MTS, August 1978 Other volumes are in preparation. Ihe numerical order of the volumes does not necessarily reflect the chronological order of their appearance; however, in general, the higher the number, the more specialized the volume. Volume 1, for example, introduces the user to MTS and describes in general the MTS operating system, while Volume 10 deals exclusively with BASIC. Ihe attempt to make each volume complete in itself and reasonably independent of others in the series naturally results in a certain amount of repetition. Public file descriptions, for example, may appear in more than one volume. However, this arrangement permits the user to buy only those volumes that serve his or her immediate needs.
