Abstract : The research product provides a description of Project IMPACT's time-sharing monitor, Zeus, which extends the capabilities of an IBM 360 or 370 computer system. Its functions, capabilities, structure, and operation are discussed. Zeus provides capabilities needed for real-time, interactive computer applications using cathode ray tube displays. The document is intended primarily for systems programmers, and is part of a series that will completely document the IMPACT software subsystem. (Author)
