Abstract

A multi-digit display on a peripheral device is suitably controlled to permit host messages to be displayed, diagnostic messages to be displayed from the device, error messages to be displayed from the device, status messages such as ""ready'', ""not ready'', "busy'' and so forth to be displayed, and control unit messages to be displayed. Such display enhances operator interaction with the data processing installation, thereby increasing efficiencies.
