The RC 4000 multiprogramming system consists of a monitor program that can be extended with a hierarchy of operating systems to suit diverse requirements of program scheduling and resource allocation. This manual defines the functions of the monitor and the basic operating system, which allows users to initiate and control parallel program execution from typewriter consoles. The excerpt reprinted here is the general description of the philosophy and structure of the system. This part will be of interest to anyone wishing an un-derstanding of the system in order to evaluate its possibilities and limitations without going into details about exact conventions. The discussion treats the hardware structure of the RC 4000 only in passing.
