The RT-11 Software Dispatch complements the RT-11 Software Dispatch Review. New and revised
Software Product Descriptions, programming notes, software problems and solutions, and
documentation corrections are published here. Much of the material is developed from Software
Performance Report (SPR) answers significant to the general audience and is printed here to
supplement the maintenance notebook (established by the Software Dispatch Review).

What We Can Do for You:
1. Blank SPR forms are available upon request in the desired quantities through the SPR
Administration (P.O. Box F) and your local office/SPR Center.
2. Copies of the SPR acknowledgement and answer are sent to the appropriate DIGITAL
Office/SPR Center for their information.
3. STATUS FOR SUBMITTED SPRs IS PROVIDED UPON REQUEST.
4. SPRs marked PROBLEM/ERROR will have a response for DIGITAL SUPPORTED
products. These SPRs should refer to suspected deficiencies in the software.
5. SPRs marked SUGGESTION are forwarded to the pertinent software group for informa-
tion purposes, and are responded to at their discretion.
What Your Can Do for Us:
1. Fill out the form completely either by typing or printing clearly. PLEASE INCLUDE
YOUR SOFTWARE SERVICE CUSTOMER NUMBER IN THE ADDRESS BOX.
2. Limit only one problem per SPR form. Several problems on an SPR can lengthen the
turnaround time. |
3. WHENEVER POSSIBLE, SUBMIT ANSPRWITHATTACHMENTS, SUCH AS MACHINE
READABLE DATA, DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO REPRODUCE THE
PROBLEM, PROGRAM AND/OR DATA FILES, LISTINGS, AND CONSOLE LOG.
4. It would be helpful to all concerned if problems with patches are reported as soon as
possible. |
5. For security SPRs, it is imperative that the DO NOT PUBLISH box be marked.
6. ltwould be helpful if tapes submitted with SPRs are labeled (track and density), and have
a directory attached.
7. Complete the questionnaire that is supplied with each SPR answer. Your feedback is.
essential in monitoring the quality of our responses.
8. SPRsshould not be used for problems concerning software policy, software distribution,
or hardware. The local office should be contacted in these cases.

(PATCH 18)
ACCEPT CAUSES ERRORS (LG)
Under TSD and XMTSD, if ACCEPT instructions are used to read
single characters from a data file and place them in an Al field,
a TRAP TO 4 or an Inconsistent OPEN error message will occur
under the following conditions:
a. the data file is not terminated with a CTRL/Z.
b. the last block of the file has at least one null
character following the last record.
Patch 18 corrects this problem so that a "MOUNT SUCCESSOR FOR
INPUT" message is generated in the situation described above.
The version number of TSD changes to VB05-01I, and XMTSD changes
to VC05-01G.
Using the editor, create the following source files. Name them
as indicated in the comment line that begins each file. Then, to
install the patch, follow the procedure shown following the
source files.

I-O ERROR ON ISAM STORE/DELETE (LG)
The problem described below occurs under the Single-Job monitor and Single-
User DIBOL only.
If you are STOREing or DELETEing records in an ISAM file, when a group splits
it is possible to receive an error 22 I-0 ERROR, where no error should be re-
ceived at all.
Patch 19 corrects this problem and changes the version number of SUD to
VA95>-01G.
Using the editor, create the following source files. Name them as indicated
in the comment line that begins each file. Then, to install the patch, follow
the procedure shown following the source files.

If a foreground job is using the CSI, and a background job or keyboard
command uses the CSI at the same time, unpredictable results occur. Either
or both jobs may function incorrectly, or be aborted prematurely.
The following patches will correct this problem.
The binary FB monitor patch contains the variable xx, which represents the
physical device name for your system volume,

RT-11 SOFTWARE DISPATCH
CUMULATIVE INDEX
MARCH 1980
This is a complete listing of all articles for current versions of RT-11 and related products. In the
case of subordinate software, missing sequence numbers may pertain to problems unique to interaction
with previous versions of the same product or other major operating systems.
IMPORTANT!
Unassigned articles are indicated: UNASSIGNED.
Flags are currently being installed for all articles. The flags and definitions are as follows:
M = Mandatory Patch. These patches correct errors in the software product. All users are required to
apply these patches to maintain consistent "user level" unless the accompanying article specifies
otherwise.
F = Optional Feature Patch. These patches extend or configure functionality into the product. These
functions will be treated as a supported part of the product for the duration of the current
release and will be incorporated with any future release, unless otherwise stated.
R = Restriction. These articles discuss areas that will not be patched in the current release because
they require major modification or because they are not consistent with the design of the product.
Restrictions, except those described as permanent, are reviewed and modified when possible as part
of the normal release cycle.
N = NOTE. These articles provide explanatory information that supplements the manual set and provide
more detailed information about a program or package. They also provide procedural information to
make it easier to use a program or package.

Software Product Description
PRODUCT NAME: DECnet-RT, Version 1.1, RT-11 Network Software
DESCRIPTION:
DECnet-RT, Version 1.1, allows a suitably configured
RT-11 system to participate as a Phase || DECnet node
in point-to-point computer networks. DECnet-RT
offers task-to-task communications, network file
transfer and network resource-sharing capabilities,
using the DIGITAL Network Architecture (DNA) pro-
tocols. DECnet-RT communicates with adjacent
nodes over synchronous and asynchronous commun-
ication lines. Access to DECnet-RT is supported for
RT-11 user programs written in MACRO-11 and
FORTRAN.
DECnet-RT is a Phase || network product and is war-
ranted for use only with Phase |! DECnet products
supplied by DIGITAL.
The functionality available to an RT-11 user depends,
in part, on the configuration of the rest of the network.
Each DECnet product offers its own level of functional-
ity and its own set of features to the user. Networks
consisting entirely of DECnet-RT nodes (a two-node
network because DECnet-RT supports one communi-
cation line) have the full functionality described in this
SPD. Networks that mix DECnet-RT nodes with other
DECnet products may limit the functions available to
the DECnet-RT user because some DECnet-RT fea-
tures may not be supported by all DECnet products.
The Phase || products and functions available to users
on mixed networks can be determined by comparison
of the SPDs for the component products. An overview
of DECnet and common functionality available with
mixed networks can be obtained from the General
Phase || DECnet SPD.
Task-to- Task Communication
Using DECnet-RT, an RT-11 user program written in
MACRO-11 or FORTRAN can exchange messages
with other programs using Phase || DECnet DNA pro-
tocols. The two user programs must be adjacent
DECnet nodes. (Adjacent nodes control opposite ends
of a point-to-point communication line.) If the nodes
are adjacent, the second node can be any Phase ||
DECnet system. The DECnet messages sent and re-
ceived by the two user programs van be in any data
format.
LER
‘Network File Transfers Utilities om
Using DECnet-RT utilities, a user can transfer sequen-
tial ASCII files between Phase Il DECnet nodes.
January 1980
SPD 10.72.4
Files can be transferred in both directions between a
locally supported RT-11 File System device and the file
system of an adjacent DECnet node.
In addition, other types of files may be transferred
where formats are compatible between the Phase ll
DECnet nodes.
Additional facilities allow system command files or
batch files to be submitted to a remote node where the
list of commands isin the format expected by the node
responsible for the execution. DECnet-RT does not
support system command or batch files to be submit-
ted from other systems.
Network Resource Access
File Access
File access is supported to and from remote DECnet
systems by explicit subroutine calls in FORTRAN and
MACRO tasks.
READ, WRITE, OPEN and CLLOSE, and DELETE oper-
ations can be initiated by local FORTRAN and MACRO
tasks for sequential files residing at remote DECnet
systems. Other nodes supporting File Access can
exercise this capability for files located on the RT-11
node. Fixed and variable length record formats are
supported. Further, files accessed remotely can con-
tain either ASCII or binary information.
Network Information Program
Using the DECnet-RT NIP utility, a user can set node
name and password, and display statistics related to
the communication lines, including data on traffic and
errors. Output can be directed to the terminal or to a
log file.
Terminal Communication Utility
The DECnet-RT TLK utility allows a user at a DECnet-
RT node to send messages to adjacent DECnet nodes
that support the same feature. Messages can be
directed to a specific terminal or to the operator's con-
sole at the destination node. TLK dialog mode allows
users on the two systems to type messages to one
another.
Communications
e DECnet- RT Version 1. 1 supports the DIGITAL Data
“E Message Protocol {DDCMP) for
full- or half- -duplex transmission in point-to-point
operation using serial synchronous or asynchro-
nous facilities. DDCMP provides error detection-
/correction and physical link management facilities.
AE-D431D-TC
29
DECnet-RT, Version 1.1
*e One point-to-point link can be supported by aRT-11
node. Only one link can connect any pair of nodes.
DECnet-RT Operation
DECnet-RT is implemented as a driver under RT-11
FB/XM and as subroutines that would be linked with
the foreground or background RT-11 program. Min-
imum memory residency requirements for a driver and
network code are 7K words (14K bytes), and at least 1K
words (2K bytes) for temporary data storage. Conse-
quently, the user should pian to dedicate at least 8K
words (16K bytes) of memory storage to network con-
trol functions. Additional memory will be required for a
user-written network task or any DECnet utility func-
tions to be invoked (file transfer, TLK). Maximum addi-
tional memory required for DECnet-RT, Version 1.1
utility is 10K words.
DECnet-RT Configuration
The process of configuring a DECnet-RT node is
based primarily on trade-offs of cost, performance,
and functionality, within the realm of satisfying the
user's application requirements. It can be readily
expected that network applications will run the full
gamut from low-speed, low-cost situations to those of
relatively high performance and functionality. The per-
formance of a given DECnet node is a function not only
of the expected network traffic and resultant process-
ing (“global” conditions), but also of the amount of
concurrent processing peculiar to that node (“local”
conditions). Thus, node performance depends on
many factors, including:
e CPU power
e Number of device interrupts per unit time
e Communication line characteristics
e Number and size of buffers
e Message size and frequency
e “Local” applications
It is important to note that the rate at which user data
may be shipped (“throughput”) over a communica-
tions line may sometimes approach, but will never
equal or exceed, the actual line speed. The reason,
simply stated, is that the actual throughput is a func-
tion of many factors, including the user application(s),
network topology, protocol overhead, and the factors
cited at the beginnning of this section.
There are basically two groups of communications
interfaces presented in the tables below. They differ in
many respects, particularly in their effect upon CPU
utilization.
e The DMC11 is a direct memory access (DMA)
device. Also, the DDCMP line protocol is executed
in microcode by the DMC11 communication con-
troller, thus, off-loading the PDP-11. Thus, the only
DECnet load the processor sees is completed
incoming and outgoing messages.
-2-
SPD 10.72.4
e With character interrupt devices such asthe DUP11,
CPU cycles are required for not only the DDCMP
processing, but also each character sent and
received.
The following tables describe what physical hardware
configurations are supported by DECnet-RT in terms
of CPU class and communication interface. It should
be noted that the attachment of such devices as A/D
converters and multiple terminals may reduce the line
speed which can effectively be supported.

Maximum Number of Lines
The largest number of physical lines which can be
attached and driven by the DECnet-RT system.
Maximum Device Bandwidth
The maximum total number of bits per second which
can be handled by a CPU for a given communication
device. For example, DECnet-RT on a PDP-11/04 can
accommodate one fuil-dupiex character-interrupt
device at 4.8KB.
Maximum Line Speed
The fastest clock rate at which the device can be driven
under DECnet-RT. This means that even if devices
have the ability to operate at a maximum rate, they
must be configured subject to the “maximum device
bandwidth” restriction above.
Mode
This indicates whether the line is operating in either
half-duplex (a single bit stream) or full-duplex (two
concurrent bit streams) mode . In some instances in
tables, a half-duplex line is quoted as having maximum
bandwidth approximately double that comparable fuli-
duplex line. This reflects the single bit stream charac-
ter of half-duplex lines, and the fact that two of them
place a load on the CPU roughly equivalent to one
full-duplex line with traffic in both directions.

Software Product Description
PRODUCT NAME: FORTRAN/RT-11 Extensions, Version 2.1
DESCRIPTION:
The FORTRAN/RT-11 Extensions consist of:
e FORTRAN IV/RT-11, Version 2.1
e A library of graphics subroutines supporting the
VT11 and VS60 display processors
e A library of laboratory subroutines supporting the
LPS11 Laboratory Peripheral System, the AR11
Analog Real Time Subsystem, and the AD11-K,
KW11-K, and DR11-K laboratory 1/0 modules
® А FORTRAN debugger
The FORTRAN/RT-11 graphics library is a compre-
hensive set of FORTRAN-callable subroutines that
enable the user to create and interact with graphic
output on the VT11 and VS60 display processors. The
subroutines enable the programmer to use many ofthe
features of the VS60. If the library is configured for the
V¥T11, the subroutines emulate the VS60 features when-
ever possible. Programs can thus be written for either
device. The user need only link the program with the
appropriate library. For additional flexibility, most sub-
routines are written in FORTRAN to facilitate mainte-
nance and modification.
The FORTRAN/RT-11 VT55 subroutine provides
access to all of the graphics features of the VT55 gra-
phics terminal. In addition, single subroutine calls can
be used to plot lines or complete data curves.
The laboratory subroutine library provides the capabil-
ity of acquiring data in ail of the modes provided by the
LPS11 and AR11 hardware and to operate a CRT dis-
play through the digital-to-analog converters provided
in these units. A completion routine capability allows
the user to write subroutines which are activated
asynchronously upon completion of many. actions,
such as the filling of a data buffer. DR11-K support
allows up to eight of these interfaces to be operated
simultaneously. The AD11-K (with optional AM11-K),
AA11-K, and KW11-K are supported in a fashion com-
patible with the LPS11 support. The library is easily
configured for the particular set of hardware on the
user's machine.
The FORTRAN debugger enables users at the console
terminal to debug the programs at the FORTRAN
level.

PRODUCT NAME: FMS-11/RT-11, Version 1.0
DESCRIPTION:
FMS-11/RT-11 is a set of utilities and subroutines that
provide a multi-terminai video forms capability for
programs written in MACRO-11, BASIC-11, or FOR-
TRAN IV under the RT-11 operating system. Forms
defined using FMS-11 can use the following features of
DIGITAL's VT100 terminal:
Reverse video characters
Bold characters
Underline characters
Blinking characters
132-column lines
Jump and smooth scrolling
Split screen
Reverse screen
FMS-11/RT-11 applications may be developed under
the RT-11 operating system and executed under the
control of either RT-11 or its execute-only subsets, RT?
or RT?/PDT.
The FMS-11 system can be used as a general purpose
manager of formatted operator 1/0 to programs written
in any of the supported languages and also as a front
end in traditional source data entry applications.
Each field in an FMS-11/RT-11 form can be assigned
attributes such as:
Validation “picture”
Embedded text characters
Right/left justification
Fixed decimal
e “Must complete”
A default value and a line of explanatory “HELP” text
can be associatedwith each field of a form. In addition,
a separate “HELP” display can be associated at the
form level.
Another feature of FMS-11/RT-11 is “named data”,
which allows named strings of constant data to be
associated with a form at form creation time and
retrieved dynamically by name or number during pro-
gram execution.
FMS-11/RT-11 applications written in MACRO-11 or
“FORTRAN IV can be built for either single- or multi=. :
terminal. In multi-terminal applications the terminals

can run different tasks and can change tasks inde-
pendently of one another. The FMS-11/RT-11 software
will support the maximum number of VT 100s allowed
under each RT-11 hardware configuration.
FMS-11/RT-11 consists of the following software
components:
hala UE
FRED (Form Editor) — The application developer
uses the interactive Form Editor to create and modify
video forms by typing them on the screen as they are to
appear tothe application user. All of the form attributes
and individual field attributes are assigned in this form
editing process. Form descriptions can be stored as
data files for further processing or in form libraries for
immediate use by application programs.
FRMUTL (Form Utility) — isa multi-function program
which manipulates FMS-11/RT-11 forms descriptions.
It can be used to list the directory of a form library or to
print a complete description of a form from a form
library or from a data file. FRMUTL can also be used to
produce an RT-11 object module of form descriptions
to be linked with the application when
memory-resident forms are desired.
FDV (Form Driver) — is a reentrant subroutine called
from application programs to perform screen process-
ing. The Form Driver manages terminal 1/0, displays
forms, manipulates the screen, performs
basic input validation, and responds to the operator's
requests for “HELP”. Operations are performed on a
per-field or form-wide basis using the form description
generated by FRED during the form editing process.
The Form Driver's high level language call interface
allows applications written in BASIC-11 or FORTRAN
IV to take full advantage of the Form Driver's
capabilities.
ARTS (Application Run-Time Supervisor) — allows
each terminal to run a MACRO-11 or FORTRAN IV
application program independently of the programs on
the other terminals. As an interface between the appli-
cation programs and the RT-11 monitor, ARTS acts as
a multi-tasking submonitor, providing subroutines for
terminal and mass storage I/O and for shared and pri-
vate file access management. Unique ARTS features
include resident tasks not attached to any terminal and
intertask message services. ARTS (with all of its tasks)

KED (Video Keypad Editor) — is a general purpose
text editor which operates on standard ASCII files.
KED uses the function keypad to control the full spec-
trum of video features of the VT 100. Most editing oper-
ations are implemented as only one or two keystrokes
on the function keypad.
When editing a main file, the user can also copy mate-
rial in from one auxiliary file and write material out to
another auxiliary output file. KED assists in the prepa-
ration of source programs by allowing the user to edit
files through a full-screen, bidirectional scrolled
“window” into the file. In addition to the standard char-
acter, word, and line operations, KED also provides
flexible search, replace, cut, paste, and repeat
functions.

Software Product Description |
PRODUCT NAME: GAMMA-11 F/B, version 3.0
DESCRIPTION:
GAMMA-11 F/B is a hardware/software system for
nuclear medicine. GAMMA-11 F/B is designed to
acquire, store, display, and manipulate images from
the gamma camera in order to supply quantitative,
meaningful clinical information.
In the foreground/background configuration, gamma
camera data acquisition can take place independently
of another process. This configuration includes two
terminals. One terminal is designated the foreground
acquisition terminal for the gamma camera and con-
trols the setup and initiation of data collection. The
other terminal, designated the background terminal,
can be used simultaneously with the foreground ter-
minal for data analysis by GAMMA-11 F/B programs,
for program development in BASIC or FORTRAN, or
for running any other programs that do not need
immediate access to the disks for successful
completion.
Only one terminal is included in the single-job configu-
ration. This configuration has all the capabilities of the
foreground/background system, except that data
acquisition and processing can not be carried out
simultaneously.
A transportable configuration (MDA11) also exists
which provides data acquisition capabilities only.
Data Acquisition
stored in seven different size matrices for static studies
and four different size matrices for dynamic studies.
Thus a user can choose the proper size and resolution
forthe job at hand. List mode acquisition (i.e., unstruc-
tured data) is also available. Static studies can be col-
lected and terminated by a preset time, preset count, or
matrix element overflow. Static studies can be linked to
provide easy collection of and access to sequential
static views. Dynamic studies are collected at a speci-
fied frame rate. List mode studies can be acquired with
an effective frame rate of 100 frames per second.
An external synchronizing time marker can be includ-
ed when acquiring either dynamic or list mode studies.
When acquired with the time marker, these modes are
called Gate Synch ronized Acquisition (GSA) and Phy-
-siologica! List Mode (PLM), respectively, and are t
primarily for cardiac studies.
January 1980
SPD 15.60.6
GSA data is stored in 32 x 32, 64 x 64, or 128 x 128
matrices. The maximum number of images per study is
determined by the amount of memory. During GSA
acquisition (background) images are displayed ‘line’
on the video display.
The heart cycle time (or time between external syn-
chronized events) is continuously monitored and dis-
played. During GSA acquisition (foreground) there is
no line display of images, however, heart cycle time is
monitored and displayed.
For GSA data acquisition, the operator can either
choose fixed time intervals for each image or allow the
program to divide the heart cycle time (averaged over
30 seconds) by the number of images chosen. A heart
cycle time window can be selected so that if a given
cycle time falls outside of this window, then the follow-
ing cycle is rejected.
Acquisition in 128 x 128 word and 256 x 256 byte
require the NCV11 interface. 256 x 256 byte acquisi-
tion requires a minimum of 64KW of memory. For dis-
play of 256 x 256 images, two additional M7068 bit
maps are required (four total).
NOTE: List mode studies and 256 x 256 byte acquisi-
tion are not possible on the MDA11.
Physiological List Mode studies are acquired with one
millisecond time intervals.
Data is reframed by creating a number of images based
on the intervai between successive externai time
markers.
With dual isotope collection, two separate images (one
for each isotope) can be collected simultaneously.
This capability does not apply to GSA or PLM.
NOTE: This gamma camera must also have the dual
isotope option.
Once collection parameters and procedures are estab-
lished, they can be set up as protocols or predefined
studies. Up to 20 predefined studies can be used to
speed setup, minimize error, and standardize collec-
tion procedures.
Patient Study Index
Once collected, patient studies are identified by a
wo gystém-gefierated index fite. Each study is-identified
by patient name, number, organ, study type, and
AE-3428G-TC
37
GAMMA-11 F/B, Version 3.0
acquisition date. Studies are selected for analysis by
index number; the user need not be concerned with the
physcial location of disk data.
Patient Monitor
Patient Monitor (background) displays line camera
data prior to acquisition. It allows for patient position-
ing and validation of external trigger input for GSA or
PLM. MDA11 and foreground patient monitors have a
pseudo display. The display is made up of 4-5 ASCII
characters.
Data Analysis and Display
Data is displayed on the VSVO1 color video monitor.
The VSVO01 color display includes a hardware charac-
ter generator permitting display, along with the image,
of patient identification and image counting statistics.
All photographs taken from the display are thus posi-
tively identified.
NOTE: No data analysis or display is possible on the
MDA11 system,

AL. —AA DIGITAL EQUIPMENT COMPUTER USERS SOCIETY
DECUS
INTRODUCTION
DECUS, the Digital Equipment Computer Users Society, was established in March of 1961 to advance the
effective use of DIGITAL computers. It is a not-for-profit users group supported in part by Digital Equipment
Corporation.
OBJECTIVES
The objectives of the Society are to advance the effective utilization of computers, computer peripheral
equipment, and software manufactured and marketed by Digital Equipment Corporation, by promoting the
interchange of information concerning their uses; advance the art of computation through mutual education
and exchange of ideas and information; establish standards and provide channels to facilitate the exchange of
computer programs among DECUS members; provide feedback to the computer industry on equipment and
software needs; and to reduce the duplication of development efforts.
ORGANIZATION
The Digital Equipment Computer Users Society is a federation of chapters, whose membership is determined
by geographic location. The membership is organized to meet the specific needs of members in its area such
as Symposia and Special User Group activities. The DECUS chapters are:
o AUSTRALIAN CHAPTER (Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, New Zealand, PNG, Singapore, )
e EUROPEAN CHAPTER (Europe, Middle East, North Africa, Russia)
e CANADIAN CHAPTER (Canada)
e US. CHAPTER (U.S. and All Others)
ACTIVITIES
1. SYMPOSIA
Symposia are sponsored throughout the year by each of the DECUS Chapters and Regional/National User
Groups. These meetings provide an opportunity for users of DIGITAL computers to meet with other users
and with DIGITAL management, engineers, and customer service representatives. They provide a forum for
users to exchange information on technique and approaches to issues of common interest and to provide
feedback to DIGITAL on existing and future products and services. Sessions at the symposia include user-
driven workshops, tutorials, product panels, as well as application /system-specific presentations.
The technical papers and presentations from each symposium are published as DECUS Proceedings.
2. SPECIAL USER GROUPS
DECUS encourages subgrouping of users with common interests and/or geographical proximity.
Special Interest Groups (SIGs) promote the interchange of specialized information for application areas,
subject areas (such as languages), or specific operating systems. A group of users must petition the Chapter
Executive Board for recognition as a Special Interest Group. The group must have a chairman, a DIGITAL
me Jn,
representative, and its organization must meet the guidelines of the Chapter Executive Board.
Geographic subgroupings are formed to service the DECUS members within a specific area although they
may also be based on interests as in SIGs. There are four types of geographic subgroupings:
1. LUGs — Local User Groups
2. NUGs — National User Groups
3. RUGS — Regional User Groups
4. SLUGs — Student Local User Groups
41
3. STANDARDS
DECUS promotes user activity in reviewing DIGITAL standards. Users are given the opportunity to
comment on DIGITAL standards prior to their finalization.
4. PROGRAM LIBRARY
One of the major activities of the users group is the DECUS Program Library. The Library contains
programs written and submitted by users and is maintained and operated separate from the Digital Software
Distribution Center. A wide range of software is available, including languages, editors, numerical functions,
utilities, display routines, and various other types of application software.
MEMBERSHIP
Membership in DECUS is voluntary and is not subject to membership fee. Members are invited to take an
active interest in the Society by contributing to the Program Library, to newsletters, and by participating in
its Special User Groups and Symposia. There are two types of membership: Installation Membership and
Association Membership.
INSTALLATION MEMBERSHIP
An organization, institution, or individual that has purchased, leased or has on order a computer
manufactured by Digital Equipment Corporation is eligible for Installation Membership in DECUS.
An Installation should appoint a person immediately concerned with the use of the computer to act as
delegate to the Society. A delegate receives all official communications and has a vote on DECUS policies
and elections. An organization or company is eligible for as many voting delegates as it has DIGITAL
‘computers. Each delegate must file an application for Installation Membership.
ASSOCIATE MEMBERSHIP
Any person who is not an appointed Installation Delegate, who has a bona fide interest in DECUS is eligible
for Associate Membership.
Membership status is acquired by submitting the enclosed application to the appropriate Chapter Executive
Secretary for approval by the Chapter Executive Board.
To obtain a membership form for DECUS, please return this form to the appropriate Chapter office listed below.
