DECREV - DECUS Library Review Generating Program
DECREV is an interactive program which produces a
carefully formatted review of a DECUS library program. The
output file generated from the dialog with the reviewer is a
"RUNOFF" file which can be distributed directly to other
potential users of the reviewed program. The output file
can also be used to produce documentation about the program
The user should type
to begin using the program. The program is essentially
self-instructing. Please note that the information entered
from the terminal is written directly into the disk file.
This means the user can enter "RUNOFF"-like text formatting
commands with his replies to the "DECREV" questions. For
the most part, this is not desirable, since the program
outputs the questions in upper/lower case and the responses
in strictly upper case, so no formatting of user response
should be attempted. Note that typing errors which are made
when inputting an individual line may be corrected by either
using the <CNTL-U> to erase the whole line so it can be
retyped or by using enough RUBOUTs to eliminate the
offending character for retyping. After the <CR-LF> is
typed, however, the only way to correct an error is to
complete the inputting of the review and then go back and
edit the runoff file created using one of the standard text
editors (e.g. TECO).
Avoid accidentally putting a "." as the first character
on a line, since this will confuse "RUNOFF" when the
"DECREV" output file is processed later.
No error messages are output by "DECREV".
DECREV - DECUS Review Generating Program Page 2
This program was written in FORTRAN-10 by H. D. Todd,
Wesleyan University Computing Center, Middletown, CT 06457.
The program accepts the number of the program being
reviewed (default DEC computer system is the DECsystem-10),
then creates the file DECNNN.RNO, where nnn is the number of
the program being reviewed. The subsequent questions and
responses are then written into the file by DECREV until the
review is completed. the file DECNNN.RNO can be edited with
standard text editors to add, edit, or delete information
given to the reviewing program, DECREV.
