***Copyright 1974, 1975 Digital Equipment Corporation,
This release of GLOB fixes all known problems with
GLOB. GLOB version 5B is required to generate a
global cross reference listing for the 6.02 KI10 or
KL10 monitors. All SPRs received prior to 1 July
1975 are solved by this release.
This release will run on all supported monitors. It
has been tested on 6.02.
2.0 EXTERNAL CHANGES
This release includes 9 edits:
Edit #117 - Changes /H processor to use HELPER
Changes version definition to standard
Edit #120 - Adds defensive code to handle REL files
with no name blocks or multiple name
Edit #121 - Cleans up problem with reinitialization
after completing output
Edit #122 - Makes /X on destination side work
Edit #123 - Makes /X on source side work
Edit #124 - Makes GLOB get length of second and
subsequent relocation groups of a block
Edit #125 - Makes GLOB handle block type 0
Edit #126 - Allow ASCII text in the .REL file,since
that is what the .TEXT pseudo-op does

GLOB5B.DOC - CHANGES FROM GLOB VERSION 5A TO VERSION 5B, 19-JUL-75.Page 2
Edit #127 - Add support for block type 100(ASSIGN).
3.0 CHANGES IN ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS
GLOB now must be loaded with HELPER (edit #117).
Thus the Assembly Instructions are:
4.0 KNOWN BUGS AND DEFICIENCIES

GLOB version 5A

0. SUMMARY OF CHANGES FROM GLOB VERSION 5 TO VERSION 5A
GLOB version 5A differs from version 5 in the
(1) It runs approximately 30 times as fast as the
previous version. Thanks to David Pensak of Harvard
University for the changes that enables this
(2) GLOB now has a HELP file.
(3) The use of an illegal switch now results in the
message "?illegal switch".
(4) Several bug fixes.
GLOB version 5A is being released because change (1)
is a tremendous benefit to all users, and because
the other changes are useful as well.
GLOB version 5A completely replaces all previous
versions and runs under all monitors.
GLOB 5A depends on FUDGE2 version 14(22) (which has
been field image for over six months). FUDGE files
produced by earlier versions of FUDGE2 may not glob
properly with GLOB version 5A.
1. NEW FEATURES
1.1 GLOB now has a HELP FILE, GLOB.HLP
1.2 The use of an illegal switch now results in the
APPENDIX A - GLOB.DOC - CHANGES FROM VERSION 5 TO 5A Page 4
message "?illegal switch".
1.3 GLOB version 5A runs approximately 30 times as fast
as the previous version (5). Thanks to David Pensak
of Harvard University for sending in the code
enabling this dramatic improvement.
2. BUG FIXES
2.1 HELP message now says "errorneous" for the /E
2.2 COMMON symbols in FORTRAN IV routines are now listed
as defined, even if the defining program comes after
the first reference.(SPR 10-7740)
2.3 GLOB no longer loops after finding a multiply
specified symbol in a FORTRAN IV routine.(SPR
2.4 Now that FUDGE2 has been fixed, GLOB no longer
contains a patch to throw away a wasted word in
indexed files.(SPR 10-6664)
Note: the change in FUDGE2 referred to was made in
FUDGE2 version 14(22) except that at the user's
option this change could be assembled out. the
change is made non-optional in FUDGE2 version
2.5 GLOB now makes allowance for special block types
output for MANTIS.
2.6 GLOB now resets the default devices to 'DSK' and the
default output filename to 'GLOB.GLB' for each
command line instead of keeping the same value as
for the previous line.(SPR 10-8218)
