Product Software Description mD~DDmD
mD~DDmD Software Product Description PRODUCT NAME: RSTS/E, Version 6C, Resource Sharing Timesharing System/Extended DESCRIPTION: The RSTS/E operating system allows multiple users to interact with the system and its data structures. RSTS/E supports up to 63 users simultaneously processing data using BASIC-PLUS; or using the optionally available COBOL, FORTRAN IV, RPG II, APL, and BASIC-PLUS-2 language facilities. RSTS/E also supports line printer spooling and execution of up to 8 batch streams. The RSTS/E data file system provides a range of online processing capabilities. Files can be created, updated, extended, and deleted interactively from the user's terminal or under program control. Files can be protected from access on an individual, group, or universal basis. Files can be accessed by many terminal users simultaneously and updated on-line. Data can be stored on removable disk cartridges, disk packs, or magnetic tape. Industry-compatible magnetic tape files prepared on another computer can be read on RSTS/E, and tape files generated on RSTS/E are readable by other computer equipment. The RMS-11 record management services included with RSTS/E support the relative and sequential organizations of COBOL and BASIC-PLUS-2. In addition, RSTS/E also supports single and multi-key indexed file organization with the optionally available RMS-11 K package. RSTS/E dynamically allocates processor time, memory space, file space, and peripherals on a bestfit/best-throughput basis. Since RSTS/E is a resource sharing system, every terminal user has access to all the system peripherals and resources. Line printers, card readers, disks, and tapes are all available to any terminal user on-line. RSTS/E can provide output from these devices in a format meaningful for the recipient. One system resource, the terminals, can also be accessed by a user program for input and output. A single program can control any number of terminals up to a total of 63. The system manager and privileged users have online access to system management commands and operations. Additionally, system commands and library programs, including the DEC EDITOR, are also available to all users. RSTS/E provides the ability for total or selective backup of programs and files. Backup can be done on-line. In the event of a malfunction such as a sys- June 1978 SPD 13.1.11 tem crash or power brown-out, the basic system will automatically recover while programs and data files are maintained intact.

DIGITAL's sole obligation shall be to correct defects (nonconformance of the SOFTWARE to the SPD) as described below. Any SOFTWARE with a designated Support Category C will be furnished on an 'as is' basis. For SOFTWARE with a designated Support Category A or B, DIGITAL will provide the services set forth below without additional charge. CATEGORY A 1. Upon notification by customer to the nearest DIGITAL office that the computer system, including all required prerequisite hardware and software, is ready for the installation of the SOFTWARE, DIGITAL will install such SOFTWARE in any location within the contiguous forty-eight (48) United States, the District of Columbia, or a country in which DIGITAL or a subsidiary of DIGITAL has a software service facility. The notification must be received by DIGITAL and the system must be ready for installation within thirty (30) days after the delivery of the SOFTWARE to customer or DIGITAL will have no obligation to install. Installation will consist of: (1) verification that all components of the SOFTWARE have been received by customer, (2) loading the SOFTWARE, and (3) executing a DIGITAL sample procedure. 2. During the ninety (90) day period after installation, if the customer encounters a problem with the current unaltered release of the SOFTWARE which DIGITAL determines to be a defect in the SOFTWARE, DIGITAL will provide the following remedial service (on site where necessary): (1) if the SOFTWARE is inoperable, apply a temporary correction (TC) or make a reasonable attempt to develop an emergency by-pass, and (2) assist the customer to prepare a Software Performance Report (SPR) and submit it to DIGITAL. 3. During the one (1) year period following installation, if the customer encounters a problem with the SOFTWARE which his diagnosis indicates is caused by a SOFTWARE defect, the customer may submit an SPR to DIGITAL. DIGITAL will respond to problems reported in SPRs which are caused by defects in the current unaltered release of the SOFTWARE via the Maintenance Periodical for the SOFTWARE, which reports SPRs received, code corrections, temporary corrections, generally useful emergency by-passes and/or notice of the availability of corrected code. Software Updates, if any, released by DIGITAL during the one (1) year period, will be provided to the customer on DIGITAL's standard distribution media as specified in the applicable SPD. The customer will be charged only for the media on which such updates are provided, unless otherwise stated in the applicable SPD, at DIGITAL's then current media prices. CATEGORY B During the one (1) year period following delivery, the services provided to the customer will be the same as set forth in 3 above. CATEGORY C SOFTWARE is provided on an 'as is' basis. Any software services, if available, will be provided at the then current charges. DIGITAL shall have the right to make additional charges for any additional effort required to provide services resulting from customer use of other than current unaltered release of the SOFTWARE operated in accordance with the SPD.
