An operating system was developed for the CDC 1700 computer which permits local batch jobs to be processed while the computer serves as a remote terminal to a large scale CDC computer. The system is designed to be used on a CDC 1700 computer with 32 K words of memory, a card reader, a card punch, a line printer, a plotter, and a disk. The major obstacle in developing the system was the contention between local batch jobs and the remote terminal data streams for the IO devices. The input of the local batch jobs was implemented by spooling the local batch jobs to a disk and then reading the input from disk during execution.
