Abstract : The report describes the two assembly language programs required to interface THE ALOHA SYSTEM's radio-linked peripherals to IBM's Telecommunications Access Method (TCAM) under the Time Sharing Option (TSO) of the IBM 360 MVT Operating System. Included is a discussion of the EXCP Interface which intercepts and user packets and status information with THE ALOHA SYSTEM's Hewlett-Packard 2115A minicomputer. The interface in its general form may be used in any TCAM-TSO configuration to enable the use of non-TCAM-supported terminals with TSO. (Author)
