Roscoe Utility Processes

Ron Tischler, Raphael Finkel, Marvin Solomon

Roscoe is a multi-computer operating system running on a network of LSI-11 computers at the University of Wisconsin. Roscoe consists of a kernel program resident on each computer and several utility processes. This document describes the implementation of the Roscoe utility processes at the level of detail necessary for a programmer who intends to add a module or modify the existing code. Companion reports describe the purposes and concepts underlying the Roscoe project, present the implementation details of the kernel, and display Roscoe from the point of view of the user program.
