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 and/or 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)
