       OPSER is a program designed to run  up
       to  14 jobs from 1 terminal.  Each job
       run by OPSER is called a subjob.  Text
       is  sent to the subjobs using commands
       of the form:


       Where <subjob>  specifies  the  subjob
       number    or   name.    For   complete
       instructions   on   OPSER   see    the
       Utilities  Manual  in volume 12 of the
       DECsystem-10 Software Notebook.


       ^A  Send a ^C (control C) to the subjob.
       ^B  Send a ^O(control O) to the subjob.
       ^E  Send an escape to the subjob.
