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.
1.0 THIS FILE, INDEX.OPR
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
2. The file PERMUT.CTL may be used to permute
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.
