Abstract:

Command and Information System Mark 1 CIS 1 provides for the real time control and display functions needed in the Aeronautical Research Laboratories Hybrid Computing System HCS3. CIS 1 consists of a large cursive C.R.T. display interfaced via an A.R.L.-developed controller and a PDP-1120 minicomputer to the A.R.L. DEC-system-10 central timesharing computer. CIS 1 also provides capability for general purpose interactive and static graphics applications. This note contains the reference manual for CISPAC, a DECsystem-10 FORTRAN-callable subroutine package for driving CIS-1. Two utility programs for on-line display of DECsystem-10 text and plot files are described. DECsystem-10 and PDP-1120 programming for CIS 1 is covered, the hardware is described, and the process of generation of alphanumeric and symbolic character fonts for use with it is explained. Author
