Abstract : The report discusses multiprogramming systems architectures suitable for use with small machines of the PDP-8 class. Techniques for task and I/O device scheduling, storage and device allocation, buffer and timer management, and command language interpretation are discussed in detail. Illustrative details are freely drawn from a follow-on version of RAMP, a multiprogramming system now used in several applications involving process control, message switching, and terminal control.
