This is the eighteenth Autopatch tape. It supports ALGOL-20-V1-2,
APL-20-V2, APLSF-20-V2, BASIC-PLUS-2-V2A, COBOL-20-V13, COBOL-REP-V13,
DBMS-V6-1, DECNET-20-V4, FTS-20-V1, GALAXY-20-V5, IBMCOM-20-ET-V2-1,
IBMCOM-20-HASP-V1-1, MS-SOURCES-20-V11, PASCAL-20-V1, PSI-20-V1-1,
SORT-20-V5, SORT-REP-V5, TOPS-20-2060-V6-1, TOPS-20-TCPIP-V6-1,
TRAFFIC-20-V4, UTILITIES-20-V6-1, and UTILITIES-B-V6-1. To install
Autopatch for the first time, you must first restore the second save set
and follow the instructions found in the Autopatch Procedures/Reference
Manual and the INSTAL.DOC file. Information specific to each product is
recorded in section 5.0 of this document.
1. The following products are no longer Autopatched because of new
releases: COBOL-20-V12B, DBMS-20-V6, DECNET-20-V3, DIL-20-V1,
FORTRAN-20-V6, FORTRAN-20-V7, FORTRAN-20-V10, FORTRAN-REP-V10,
GALAXY-20-V4, GALAXY-20-V4-2, LINK-20-V5-1, MS-20-V10,
PSIMCB-20-V1-1, PSIUTL-20-V1-1, RMS-20-V1, SORT-20-V4C,
TOPS-20-2020-V4, TOPS-20-2040-V4, TOPS-20-2060-V4,
TOPS-20-2060-V5-1, TOPS-20-KL-ARPA-V4, TOPS-20-KS-ARPA-V4,
TOPS-20-KL-ARPA-V5-1, UTILITIES-20-V4, and UTILITIES-20-V5-1.
It is strongly suggested that you DESELECT any of these
products before proceeding with processing any
currently supported products.
2. The following Autopatched product(s) do not have any new edits
delivered with this patch set: ALGOL-20-V1-2, APL-20-V2,
APLSF-20-V2, DBMS-V6-1, FTS-20-V1, GALAXY-20-V5, PASCAL-20-V1,
SORT-20-V5, SORT-REP-V5, and TRAFFIC-20-V4.
3. (*new*) We have eliminated the product-specific DUMPER cmd
files. There are now two files. The ALL.P18 file will restore
files for all desired products from the CURRENT patch tape.
The ALL.A18 file will restore files for all desired products
from the HISTORICAL patch tape. The loading process depends on
the definition of product-specific logicals. Each file will
use the definitions in the LAP.DEF file. A default LAP.DEF
file is supplied in the first save-set. This LAP.DEF defines
logicals for all products. It is intended that you only have
logicals defined in LAP.DEF for those products that are being
Autopatched at your site. The recommended procedure for
Autopatching a product for the first time is to create a
temporary version of LAP.DEF that defines the logical for only
that product. Use of ALL.Pnn and ALL.Ann will then restore all
files for that product.
4. (*new*) Most of the patch files for DECNET components on this
tape have already been delivered on previous tapes. They are
here for the PSI product which should have had these updates
applied. The only new items for the DECNET product are NFT and
5. (*new*) The DIL V2 components have been part of both the
UTILITIES-20-V6-1 and the UTILITIES-B-V6-1 product sets. This
has been fixed. You must Autopatch the UTILITIES-B-V6-1
product to get the DIL edits delivered with this tape.
6. (*new*) We have provided null patch command files for APL, SORT
and PSI. If you build any of these products in spite of the
fact that no edits are delivered these files will permit a
successful build. There will be checksum warnings about these
files which may be ignored.
7. (tape 17) A recent change to PEP causes a justifiable failure
during SELECT or BUILD if a BLD type file, described in the PDF
file, is missing. However, up to now, the DB2V61.PDF file
referenced a non-existent DBMS.CMD file. This has been
changed. Users who select DBMS with the PDF file from the
second save-set on this tape will not have the problem. Users
who currently are Autopatching DBMS will need a dummy DBMS.CMD
file. Such a file has been included on the first save-set of
this tape. This file should be restored to any area (PAT:,
DIS: or INS:) for DBMS.
8. (tape 17) Users of FORTRAN with DBMS are advised to use the
DBCS2F.CMD file which was delivered on the DBMS distribution
tape and NOT the newer version on the FORTRAN V11 distribution
tape. The FORTRAN version references a file (DBSFG.REL) which
was never released.
9. (tape 17) The same RMSINT.UNV replacement file was delivered on
both tape 15 and tape 16. However, due to an error in the
Distributed Patch Directory file (DPD) for tape 16, the L36
file was renamed to be the UNV. We have corrected this problem
by again distributing the same update to the UNV file on this
10. (tape 16) There is a new version of PEP in the second save-set.
PEP has been modified to retain the correct size and byte size
for copy operations. This is important for the .EXB files of
BOOT. The new PEP and PEPB will be restored if using the
11. (tape 16) The HELPER.MAC and HELPER.REL which were distributed
on the latest "Tops-20 V4.1 Update tape" (BB-R775E-BM) are for
use with EDT builds only. These files have not been validated
as replacements for the original HELPER distribution and are
not to be used as such.
If the EDT-only HELPER is retrieved from the Update tape and
used in place of the standard HELPER the UT2V61 product build
Copies of the original release of HELPER.MAC and HELPER.REL are
available in the first saveset of the Autopatch tape for your
12. (tape 16) Autopatch Tape 16 for TOPS-20 6.1 contains a software
documentation file that reflects the software on the tape.
DIGITAL authorizes you to make up to two copies of the
documentation for use at your site, as long as you maintain
DIGITAL's copyright page. We request that you print the file
and use one of the reply forms to send your opinions to us.
On Autopatch Tape 16, you will find the following documentation
1. DDT44C.MEM contains the DDT Manual; it uses approximately
118 pages of disk space. This version of the manual
contains changes that we have made since the manual was
printed for TOPS-20 DDT Version 43, in May 1985.
2. DDTINFO.MEM is a duplicate of this customer letter and the
DDT44C.MEM is about 155 line-printer pages long and contains
change bars to indicate the pages that have changed and bullets
to indicate data deletions. The file contains non-printing
control characters for paging and bolding effect, making it
unsuitable for terminal display. We recommend that you print
the file on any supported line printer.
13. (tape 16) Be sure to read the T26A61.B16 and T26V61.B16 beware
14. (tape 15) This time the Autopatch updates are delivered on two
tapes. The first tape (BB-L014x-BM) contains the current patch
save-set and the installation save-set. If you are at current
tape level and are not Autopatching any 'old' products for the
first time, this first tape is the only one you need to use.
Procedures for using this tape are identical to those for use
of the previous Autopatch tape.
The second tape (BB-KL11x-BM) contains historical patch
save-sets. This tape is needed if you are not up to current
tape level or you are Autopatching, for the first time, a
product which was supported previously.
In essence, the old tape format has been split with the first
two save-sets of the old format now being written to a separate
tape. All of the DUMPER cmd files are still found in the
current patch save-set (first save-set of the first tape). The
ALL.Pnn file restores files from the current (first) tape and
the ALL.Ann file restores files from the historical (second)
If you are Autopatching ALGOL, for example, for the first time
and want to use the DUMPER cmd files, create a LAP.DEF file
with the LAPALG: logical defined and use the ALL.Pnn file on
the CURRENT tape and the ALL.Ann file on the HISTORICAL tape.
15. (tape 15) We have included the DCRYPT program in the second
save-set. This tool is not a supported part of Autopatch.
DCRYPT may be used to decrypt the replacement EXE/REL files for
COBOL-REP-V13, FORTRAN-20-REP-V11, and SORT-REP-V5 without
using Autopatch procedures. The README file details the
relationship between Patch files and End-user files. The KEY
files from the distribution tapes are required. A help file
for DCRYPT is also provided.
16. (tape 15) Users of the new FORTRAN V11 must update RMS V3 with
this Autopatch tape in order to use the RMS interface with the
new FORTRAN. RMS is part of the UTILILITIES-B-V6-1 product.
17. (tape 15) The Distributed Patch Directory file as originally
delivered on Autopatch tape 12 had two entries for correction
files to LINK. These entries were made in error. With tape 13
and subsequent tapes the correct PAT212.DPD file has been
provided. Before autopatching UTILITIES with tape 12 edits be
sure that the PAT212.DPD file has a date of 30-MAY-86 or later.
18. (tape 15) A replacement RAM.ULD file has been put on the first
save-set of this tape. This file is used when building the
KNILDR component of the UTILITIES product. This file contains
several edits to the NI microcode. The RAM.ULD file is not
maintained as part of the UTILITIES product and should be
simply restored to PAT:. The restoration will occur normally
with the use of the ALL.Pnn file.
19. (tape 14) This tape contains important edits for COBOL V13.
The edits fix the way LIBOL does BLTs. COBOL without these
edits may have errors when used with the new micro-code
2.1(442) which was delivered with the most recent update tape
(6.1A). Both the source-patched and the Decrypted EXE
replacement updates contain these edits.
20. (tape 14) There are two files in the second save-set of the
Autopatch tape which are required for UTILITIES. The
EDTHLP.RNO and MAKHLP.EXE files should be placed in the DIS:
area. These files were omitted from the distribution tape and
were previously designated as required in INS:. The UT2V61
DUMPER control file will restore these files to PAT:. You must
copy these files to DIS:.
21. (tape 13) For the 6.1 monitor there are two LINK CCL files
(P6BLNK.CCL and P6MLNK.CCL). These files were omitted from the
TOPS-20 V6.1 distribution but are included on the first
save-set of this Autopatch tape. Use of the ALL.Pnn file will
put these files in PAT:. Before building the monitor the user
must rename one of these files to be P6LNK.CCL. The 'P6B' file
is for a 'BIG' configuration and the 'P6M' file is for a 'MAX'
Similary, replacement LINK CCL files have been provided for the
TCP/IP monitor product. Before building the ARPA monitor the
user must rename one of these files to be ANLNK.CCL. The 'ANS'
file is for a 'BIG' configuration, the 'ANM' file is a for a
'MAX' configuration and the 'AND' file is for an ARPA/DECNET
22. (tape 13) Be aware that the distributed PARAMS.MAC file builds
a monitor which provides NIA20 (Ethernet) support. STG.MAC
will not assemble correctly if this is changed because of the
lack of the NIPAR.UNV file on the distribution. This file is
provided in the first save-set of this Autopatch tape.
Also, be sure that there is not a 5.1 PARAMS.MAC file in PAT:.
This file was delivered on Autopatch tape 9 and should be
23. (tape 13) The COBOL V13 Autopatch Patch & Build control file
(CBL13.CTL) has been changed to NOT put DBMS support into
COBLIB.REL. The supported method of DBMS implementation is to
LINK DBMS.REL into the OTS (COBOTS-V13.EXE). This procedure is
accomplished by the DBMS 6.1 build file (DB2V61.CTL). The
DB2V61 product should have been 'tracking' the DBMS.REL file,
but has not.
If you use Autopatch for DBMS/COBOL then you must take one of
two actions to correct the problem with DBMS.REL. You may
restore the revised DB2V61.PDF file from the second save-set of
the Autopatch tape, DESELECT the DBMS product with the PEP
tool, SELECT DBMS with PEP, and Autopatch DBMS. An updated
DBMS.REL will now be tracked and installed as with other
Alternatively, you may insert a copy command into DB2V61.CTL
after a successful build is signalled to move the new DBMS.REL
file from PAT: to INS:. However, a later RESTORE with PEP
will not do the right thing with this file.
Users who install DBMS for Autopatching for the first time with
this tape do not need to be concerned with this problem. The
CBL13.CTL file will no longer implement DBMS support in the OTS
- you must Autopatch DBMS to accomplish this.
24. (tape 13) It is possible to use DECNET without the MCB
front-end code. At this time, the Autopatch process for DECNET
requires you to build the MCB. If you do not intend to use the
MCB then you may SELECT DECNET for Autopatching after 1)
creating a null FOO.SYS file in the directory you intend to use
as INS: and 2) copying the CETAB.MAC, NETPAR.MAC and
NMLACC.MAC files from the second save-set of the Autopatch tape
into the area you intend to use as DIS:.
When SELECTing DECNET answer the node name with FOO.SYS.
25. (tape 13) The EXEC building process for tape 12 displayed a
warning message about Multiply-defined global symbol STATSW.
This message may be ignored and the problem is corrected with
the delivery of EXECDE.UNV in the first save-set of this
26. (tape 13) PEP reports a strange EDIT/VERSION for the rebuilt
COBOTS-V13.EXE file. An INFORMATION VERSION on the component
reports no edit at all! This is due to a flaw/bug in the COBOL
product and may be ignored. Using DDT to display the contents
of location 137 will show the correct EDIT/VERSION.
27. (tape 13) If you use tape drives other than the TU72, be sure
to read the GALV50.B13 beware file regarding a MOUNTR edit.
28. (tape 12) The FTS-20 product build requires some DIL V1
modules. Since DIL V2 has replaced DIL V1 these V1 modules are
no longer Autopatched. The modules (DAP2V1 and XPN2V1) have
been provided on the second save-set of the Autopatch tape.
The use of the ALL.Pnn file will restore these files to the
patching directory. FTS-20 may now be Autopatched at any time
without regard to the Autopatching of DIL V2 which is now part
of the UTILITIES-20 product set.
29. (tape 12) A normal customized installation of DECNET-20-V4 or
PSI-20-V1-1 MUST occur before the product can be Autopatched.
30. (tape 12) The use of the Monitor/EXEC DDC file to perform
initial distribution directory loading will also load required
files for GALAXY and the UTILITY set into the common directory.
Be sure to specify this directory name when SELECTing the
products with PEP. The use of the GALV50.DDC or UT2V61.DDC
file is ONLY required if you do NOT use the T26V61.DDC or
31. (tape 12) The SELECTion of TOPS-20 Utilities requires that
CHECKD.EXE, 6-1-SETSPD.EXE, and 6-1-SYSJOB.EXE exist in the
installation directory specified. This means you either have
to copy these files to INS:, or DEFINE INS: to include the
SYSTEM: logical. Additionally, after each autopatch update of
these utilities, they must be copied from the autopatch
installation directory to a SYSTEM: directory.
32. (tape 11) The DBMS-V6-1 Autopatch build control file
(DB2V61.CTL) clears ALL logical definitions. If there are user
logical definitions which must be in effect, these definitions
can be placed in a take command file named SETUP.CMD in the
33. (tape 11) COBOL-20-V13 users should be sure that a revised
OTSDEL.CMD file from the second (installation) save-set on this
tape is used. The old version deleted C8XSHR.REL which caused
errors when the build process then tried to copy that file for
later use by the DBMS process. The revised file will be
restored from the Autopatch tape if the ALL.Pnn file is used.
34. (tape 11) Several products use external command files in their
build procedure. When a new version is provided, be sure that
the newest versions of these command files are used. In
particular, use the F20LIB.CCL and F20OTS.CCL files from the
version 11 tape and not from previous releases. Use of normal
Autopatch procedures will put the new files in the common
patching directory where they will be used. If, however, you
are using a customized directory/logical setup, you must be
sure that the correct files are being used.
35. (tape 10) Revised copies of DBCS24.CMD, DBCS28.CMD and
DBCS2F.CMD for the DBMS-V6 product have been delivered on
previous Autopatch tapes. Be sure that these files are NOT in
the common patching directory (PAT:).
36. (tape 10) If you are building either COBOL or FORTRAN with DBMS
V6-1, do not INSTALL COBOL or FORTRAN before building DBMS.
Unlike the V6 product, the V6.1 Autopatch procedure requires
that COBOL and/or FORTRAN be built BEFORE the DBMS V6.1
Autopatch build is submitted. The DBMS V6.1 Autopatch
procedure will implement DBMS within COBOL and FORTRAN.
37. (tape 9) The COBOL-V13 product may now be updated with REL/EXE
replacement. If you want to use this method the KEY files must
be restored from the COBOL distribution tape, support files for
CBL13R restored from the Autopatch tape, and the COBOL-REP-V13
product selected with PEP. See the INSTAL.DOC file for more
information. The COBOL-20-V13 product will continue to receive
source-level patches and you may continue to use this method of
Autopatching. The SORT-V5 product may also be Autopatched with
either source-level or EXE replacement.
The REL/EXE replacement files have been encrypted and
must be processed via Autopatch before they can be
38. (tape 9) There are two new features of PEP and PEPB which are
worthy of note. First, the new PEP will automatically delete
copies of files in PAT: which have been successfully installed
with the INSTALL command. You may also want to use the
PATCLN.CMD file in the first save set to delete other temporary
files AFTER successful installation.
Second, the definition of ASL: has been changed to be
PAT:,DIS:,INS:. The old definition of ASL: was
PAT:,DIS:,SYS:. This change was made to obtain better control
over all files used in the build process. We have delivered
what we believe to be a complete set of base building software
on the Autopatch tape. If your procedure has problems you may
have to copy certain files into PAT:, DIS:, or INS:.
The following files are required for Autopatch use, not put in
place by Autopatch, and may have been previously found in SYS:.
NMLACC.MAC CETAB.MAC NETPAR.MAC
If these files are currently found in SYS: they must be copied
or moved to PAT:, DIS:, or INS:.
39. (tape 9) The ALGOL, COBOL, IBMCOM, and PASCAL Autopatch control
files redefine the local definition of SYS: to ensure the use
of provided Base Building Software items.
40. (tape 8) A required file for the IBMCOM products, PROD.P11, is
provided on the Autopatch tape. Use of any of the IBMCOM
DUMPER control files to process the Autopatch tape will attempt
to load this file into the default distribution areas.
41. (tape 8) Be sure to read the IETV21.B08, IHSV11.B08, and
PAS2V1.B08 beware files.
42. (tape 7) Changes have been made to the PEP utility. It is
MANDATORY that PEP.EXE and PEPB.EXE be restored to SYS: from
the installation (second) save-set.
Due to a limited amount of space in some of PEP's internal
tables, we are now declaring some products to be "obsolete".
These products will be removed from PEP's internal tables. For
the most part this process is transparent to you, unless the
obsolete product has previously been SELECTed. Suppose
TOPS-20-2060-V4 is one of your SELECTed products. In that
case, the following message would be displayed the first time
you run the new PEP:
[TOPS-20-2060-V4 is now obsolete.
Edits are no longer being delivered.
You should DESELECT this product.]
This message will only appear ONCE PER SELECTED OBSOLETE
PRODUCT. Use the DESELECT command to purge the obsolete
product from your database.
The PEP201.PDF file is NOT compatible with earlier
versions of PEP.
There is now a short version of the INFORMATION command called
STATUS. It displays the status information and logical name
definitions, but does not list any files or their checksums.
43. (tape 7) PA1050.EXE, unlike other Base-building Software, is
invoked indirectly from SYS:. In order to avoid checksum
warnings from PEP, the PA1050.EXE program which is supplied on
this tape and restored to PAT: must be copied to SYS: before
44. (tape 7) The Autopatch process is designed to be used without
privileges enabled. If you experience protection failures
check that all parameters of the directory have been set up
properly - especially PROTECTION, DEFAULT PROTECTION, USER
GROUP, and DIRECTORY GROUP. Also, be sure that appropriate
ACCESS commands have been given for the structures in use.
45. (tape 7) The working and permanent quotas for the distribution
directory for TOPS-20 were given as 3000 pages in the manual.
If you are using the TOPS-20 distribution directory as common
to GALAXY and UTILITIES this figure should be doubled to 6000
46. (tape 6) The patch directory files (.DPD) have been
re-formatted; the same number of edits, but less 'patches',
are described. Also, intermediate checkpointing has been
suppressed during the execution of the PEP 'AUTOPATCH' command.
Checkpoint processing time has been SIGNIFICANTLY reduced.
These changes will improve PEP performance, but will cause
minor variations from the examples provided on pages 2-7, 2-17
and 3-8 of the Autopatch Procedures/Reference Manual.
47. (tape 6) The PA1050 program will automatically expunge deleted
files if the MAKLIB program causes an over quota situation. Be
aware that PA1050 will NOT expunge if the situation detected is
that the disk is physically full. The build process will
explicitly EXPUNGE the PAT: area when the MAKLIB operation is
complete. You are advised not to use infinite quota if the
disk used may run out of space.
48. (tape 6) The GALAXY and TOPS-20 DDC files may take longer than
the default five minute BATCH time limit and should be
submitted with a ten minute limit to be safe.
49. (tape 6) BATCH time limits for COBOL should be high to ensure
that the product build BATCH jobs do not abort due to CPU time
overrun. Use a figure of 5 hours to cover all possibilities.
50. (tape 6) Some products can optionally use other products. This
means that one product may have to be patched and rebuilt
before another product. For example, COBOL can optionally use
the DBMS product. The DBMS Autopatch process requires that
COBOL and/or FORTRAN be updated before DBMS.
51. (tape 6) Sites which Autopatch BASIC-PLUS-2 for the first time
may notice that the LINKing of BASOTS generates some warning
messages. These messages are given because the new LINK is
detecting a questionable but harmless situation and may be
52. (tape 5) Before SELECTing the ALGOL product for Autopatching be
sure to read the note in the INSTAL.DOC file regarding a
required rename of the OTS.
53. (tape 5) The Autopatch build process for ALGOL, COBOL, DBMS and
SORT redefines DSK:. It is MANDATORY that a structure be
specified when providing the directory specifications during
the initial SELECTion process.
54. (tape 4) When PEP is run, the connected directory must be PAT:.
55. (tape 4) It is advised that all desired products be SELECTed
for Autopatching before entering the AUTOPATCH or RETRIEVE
command for the first time. The patch retrieval process is NOT
product specific. This process can be invoked with the
RETRIEVE command or the AUTOPATCH command. PEP will then read
the entire patch directory file (.DPD) and update the patch
database file (.PDB) for all SELECTed products. If the
AUTOPATCH command is entered for a product which was SELECTed
at the time of a prior retrieval process, a statement will be
made indicating that all patches have already been retrieved.
56. (tape 3) Be sure to read the APL2B2.B03 beware file.

If you are patching a product for the first time, you must define a
distribution area and obtain some files from the dustribution tape.

* The SORT product may also be setup for Autopatching with the use of
the SRTV5.DDC file or the SRTV5R.DDC file against the BB-Z761A-SM Sort
* The DBMS product may also be setup for Autopatching without updates to
the COBOL interface with the use of the DB2V61.DDC file.
* The GALAXY product may also be setup for Autopatching with the use of
the GALV50.DDC file and the UTILITIES product with UT2V61.DDC. These
files are only needed if you do not use one of the monitor DDC files.
* The UTILITIES-B product does not use a distribution area. Updates
replace the end-user files which are installed as part of a normal
