This  permuted  index  directs  the  user   to   information
concerning   programs   and   utilities   available  on  the
DECSystem-10.  The user does not have to know  the  name  of
the utility/program in order to find information.  The index
consists of one-line descriptions and pointers  to  HLP  and
DOC  files,  the  Operating  System  Commands Manual, and to
individual subject manuals.

KEYWORDS:  Index, permuted.


This file, INDEX.OPR, contains instructions  and  hints  for
installing a permuted index at your site.

1.1  Files Provided

The following files constitute the set used to transfer  the
permuted index to your installation.

INDEX.RND       unpermuted feature citations generated
INDEX.DOC       at NBS. Install as DOC:INDEX.DOC

PERMUT.CTL      Teco batch job to permut INDEX.RAW

LETTER.TEC      Teco macro to insert breaks in permuted 
                and sorted INDEX

INDEX.RNM       Document to be printed hard copy containing
INDEX.MAN       permuted INDEX plus instructions.

HELP.RNH        Revised master help file to be installed as
Permuted DECSystem-10 Index                           Page 2

1.2  Installation Instructions

The index contains one-line citations for all  HLP  and  DOC
files  as  well  as  all  commands available at the author's
installation.  The following steps should be  followed  when
installing the index:

     1.  Edit INDEX.RND to reflect software available at the
         installing site.

     2.  The  file  PERMUT.CTL  may  be  used   to   permute
                   .SUBMIT PERMUT/TIME

     3.  Edit INDEX.PMT to remove the || inserted after  the
         runoff commands on the top line.

     4.  SORT should next be  used  to  obtain  alphabetical

     5.  LETTER.TEC will insert  a  capital  letter  at  the
         beginning of each letter in the index.  After using
         the macro LETTER.TEC the beginning and end  of  the
         file should be checked for unwanted separators.

     6.  Optionally, after running LETTER, the index  should
         be  scanned  by  a  knowledgable systems staffer to
         remove  adjacent  redundant  lines.   Although  the
         permutation  may  be  correct,  adjacent  lines may
         convey the same information.  It takes a  human  to
         identify this redundancy, however.

     7.  The sorted, permuted, separated  file  may  now  be
         added  to  the introductory section of INDEX.RNM to
         produce a site-specific permuted index.   INDEX.MAN
         is suitable for hard copy reproduction.
