Title: TSX-Plus for laboratory data acquisition and control

Abstract

TSX-Plus is a multi-user operating system for PDP-11 and LSI-11 computers, which offers many of the features available with the DEC RSX-11M. For present users of RT-11 who wish to upgrade to a multi-user operating system, TSX-Plus offers several advantages over RSX-11M, such as lower cost and software compatibility with RT-11. TSX-Plus maintains a similarity with RT-11 by employing the RT-11 utility programs and device drivers; also, the RT-11 monitor commands are a subset of the TSX-Plus commands. Laboratory applications of TSX-Plus are discussed, and a set of FORTRAN callable subroutines, which are useful for data acquisition and hardware control, are presented. Also, the use of hardware interrupt and trap instructions (software interrupt) under TSX-Plus are discussed.
