Abstract:

The oNLine System, Version 8 NLS-8 developed at the Augmentation Research Center ARC was brought to prototype operation. Improvement in fundamental design continued, but new attention was given to applications and technology transfers. Strategies included an effort to involve more and more users outside ARC, establishment of experts in NLS within user organizations, a training program, an online query system to inform users about NLS, revision of the command language and operation of Network Information Center. New developments include a simple calculator subsystem, multi-host journal system, a variety of options to tailor the system to different working conditions, file access controls, and a control meta language to make user interface writing easier and more flexible. ARC developed a microprocessor-device, the Lineprocessor, to enhance inexpensive displays for use with two-dimensional display NLS and reduce communication cost. ARC made NLS available on a subscription basis through an information utility with its own computer.
