Abstract

Findue (Find Uncorrectable Errors) is a set of programs written to run under a Processor Controller (PC) but uses none of the PC microcode to perform its function. The function of Findue is to exercise the PC port to main memory. This port to memory is particularly important in that it is the means by which the system area of main memory gets built for a data processing system. The Findue system is invoked by typing the following on the command line of the PC: "Findue address Dataword1 Dataword2 Parmword" Findue is typed in as seen and causes the PC to load and execute the Findue module. Address is an 8 hex digit address that specifies where the requested Findue operation is to begin. Dataword1 is an 8 hex digit data pattern that represents the first word of a double word inputted for Findue operation.
