Abstract : This manual describes how to operate the terminal when running an IISS application program. The IISS Terminal is an input and output device that uses a keyboard and screen to communicate with the computer. Communication between the user and the computer is achieved through electronic forms displayed on the screen. The application program displays and manipulates the forms through a set of routines called the Form Processor. The Form Processor is linked to the user's terminal via the Virtual Terminal Interface (VTI) and a specific Device Driver (DD). This removes terminal dependency so that applications may be run from a wide variety of terminals. In addition to describing the operation of the IISS terminal, this manual describes the IISS end user environment. Function selection and predefined functions called the User Interface Services (UIS) are described.
