Overlays, GKS... (Was: Re: New to list)

as I wrote in an earlier mail, my primary operating system on the PDP-11
is RSX-11M (maybe sometime /PLUS is added).

I had been modifying the XC handler once (we needed a PASSTHROUGH option
for transparent binary serial I/O to support a paper tape punch from
FORTRAN), but this was my closest encounter with "the system" so far.
Everything else was merely porting existing FORTRAN code to RT-11. I
have never looked into monitor data structures, so I'd have to collect
knowledge (RTFM) before I could make useful contributions to a discussion.

I understand Megan has a lot more knowledge and experience with RT-11,
and the discussion appears to me to be already in progress. You'll no
doubt get far better hints there.

Good luck for your project, anyway!
