This tape contains all the MULREG software, documents and help infor-
mation as of version 5H(246).
The load module (MULREG.EXE) as it is on the tape was prepared from
the source text (MULREG.SIM) using the SIMULA compiler version 4A(310) and
is meant to be copied to an ersatz device called SYS: or USR:.
The help information (MUL???.HLP) was prepared from the source
(MUL???.RNH) using the RUNOFF program version 10(232) and is meant to be
copied to an ersatz device called HLP:. The SIMULA directfile MULERR.HLP
was converted from a sequential file using the program MAKEDF as it is on
the SIMULA distribution tape.
The manual (MULREG.DOC) was also prepared from the source
(MULREG.RND) using the RUNOFF program version 10(232) and can be copied to
an ersatz device called DOC:. The layout of the manual is chosen such
that reproduction on a high quality printer like a DIABLO with line
spacing: 1.375 gives best results. The spelling of the manual was checked
using the SPELL program version 1 (DECUS number 184) with an augmented
The output (*.PRI,*.OUT) from the examples (*.INP,*.DAT) was pre-
pared using the MULREG program version 5H(246) and EXAMPL.MIC.
If the help (and error) information for the MULREG program has to
reside on another ersatz device or area, the lines 82, 424 and 425 in the
source text (MULREG.SIM) have to be modified. Lines 82 and 424 must show
the new device or area from which the MULREG program is to read its help
(and error) information. In line 425 the "sub"-attribute of the filespec
must be such that it picks the last three characters of the filename in
front of the dot which separates the filename from its extension.
A MIC command file MULREG.MIC is provided to produce a new load
module which reads help information from another area. It accepts 3
parameters, separated by commas: the name of the (new) load module
(??????.EXE), the area from which the program is to read the help
information and finally the new version number (which distinguishes the
new private version from the current official one: 5H(246)), thus:
will produce a new load module called TEST.EXE, which reads the help
information (MUL???.HLP) from area [20,72] and which has version number
