HELPER Page 2
1.0 SPECIFICATIONS FOR HELPER
HELPER is a subroutine used to output help texts
(SYS:??????.HLP) onto device TTY. It is entered via a PUSHJ
17,.HELPR with the SIXBIT module name in accumulator 1. The
return from HELPER is to the location following the PUSHJ.
HELPER presently requires seven locations on the push-down
list (provisions should be made to allow for 10 locations to
allow future expansion) on which to store and from which to
restore user AC's and Job First Free for use by the CORE UUO
to shrink core back to its original size. Disk input of the
HELP text is accomplished on channel 0.
Calling Sequence: MOVE 1,[SIXBIT /module name/]
return to here
HELPER outputs ASCIZ strings on a character-by-character
basis from a disk buffer. This method does not provide for
a message level of output to the requestor.
