The software consists of: DOS/BATCH and copies. The system is capable of supporting up to five terminals. To extend this capacity, a second terminal has been ordered. The software consists of: DOS/BATCH and Applicon AGS 800 systems together with special input/output routines and user commands, the operational procedure for which is described in this paper.
