Abstract:

JOSS is a multi-user, single-server computing system that provides for the solution of numerical problems. The system consists of a central computer containing the JOSS program and a number of typewriter consoles connected to the computer via telephone lines. The JOSS filing system provides the individual user with a service that will save him the need for retyping frequently used programs andor data. The Memorandum describes the JOSS filing system, and is intended primarily as program documentation for maintenance personnel, particularly those who may need to correct or modify the file-handling routines. The report may have interest for others, however, since it includes the rationale for more critical decisions and techniques. Author
