NETWORK.DOC -- V1(23)
The NETWORK program lists the nodes in a network in the same format as
the NODE command. In addition to the basic functionality of the NODE
command the NETWORK program also allows the user to control selection
of nodes to be displayed by wildcarded node names, device
attributes(TTY,LPT,CDR,RDA,CDP,PTP,MTA,PTR,MCR), and the ability of a
node to be a host. NETWORK can also list the network topology and
physical link costs. In addition it can also sort the nodes listed by
node number. The output of the program can be controlled by switches
to produce the desired amount of verbousity. Error messages are given
for nodes that are specified and are not found in the network.
Indirect command files are supported.
The NETWORK program does not supercede any other program since this is
the first release.
The NETWORK program will run on version 7.xx and later monitors.
2.0 EXTERNAL CHANGES
None, since this is the first release.
3.0 KNOWN BUGS AND DEFICENCIES
None at this time.
4.0 INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
In addition to the file NETWORK.MAC the files SCAN.REL, HELPER.REL,
SCNMAC.UNV, MACTEN.UNV, and UUOSYM.MAC are needed. NETWOR requires
SCNMAC version 7(106) (or later) which is included with this tape. To
compile and load NETWORK type:
LOAD REL:SCAN,REL:HELPER,DSK:NETWORK<carrage return>
SSAVE NETWORK<carrage return>
Doing this will give a sharable copy of NETWORK.EXE.

5.0 INTERNAL CHANGES
 Add the /TYPE: switch to determine a node by it's type
 Fix the core freeing code in CLRDAT to not zero DDT when loaded
 Fix the BLT in CLRDAT so it does not initalize MATCH to -1
 Fix the .ISCAN call so indirect files are illegal if logged out
 Make sure the user can't get into a "*" mode if not logged in
 Take care of the way the NODE. UUO error returns easier now
 Make CONC use .ISLGI in SCAN to be consistant in checking if logged in
 We saved the temps too early in the OFLINE routine
 Make sure that we are able to recover from a node in a "funny" state
 Buffer TTY output to reduce monitor overhead
 Change "NODE" in output to "Node"
 Change the HOST switch to be HOSTESS to be monitor compatable
 Make the program Reenterable by setting up .JBREN
 Change the way TRMOP. errors are handled and fix
 Make a zero low segment. Remove EXPs and replace with BLOCK.
 Don't allow "*" mode if not logged in...only can do when we
get control because SCAN has a matching bug, before we get it.
 Add a reset instruction because the dispatch through RUNAME
or RUNAMC in COMCON or the RUN/R command will not do a
reset unless the program is gotten from DSK. This means
that if the sharable dormant high seg was there and there
was no low seg an address check was the result.
 Fix OFLINE and correct other error recovery problems
 Add the /TOPOLOGY,/COST, and /SORT switches and fix some
more small bugs including a stack phase problem when we
used the default case (null node name).
