           TOPS10 INTEGRATION TOOLS distribution
                    Release/Version:  3

     The information in this document is dubject  to  change

by  Digital  Equipment   Corporation.    Digital   Equipment

     Note that beginning with version 3 of the tools  tapes,
the  tools  are distributed in seperate subdirectories under
the primary directory [777,777].

     The tape is comprised of  two  (2)  savesets.   Saveset
number  one is named TENTAPEX, and contains the directory of
the entire tape, and this documentation file  on  the  tapes
contents.    The  second  saveset  is  named  LSMTOOLX,  and
contains all of the [INTTOOLS...] directories.  In each case
"X" is the version number of this tools distribution.

     Note that there are a total of three  different  format
tapes  comprising  the  tools  collection:  TOPS10, TOPS20 &
VMS.  Typically, a distribution of  the  tools  consists  of
EITHER  a  TOPS10  or  TOPS20  tape,  and the VMS tape.  The
TOPS20 tape contains almost all of the  tools,  but  usually
does  not  have  the binaries for programs which run on VMS.
The TOPS10 tape also includes most  tools,  but  is  further
limited  to  those tools which have filenames six characters
or less (SED, for instance, is not on the  TOPS10  tape  for
this  reason).  The VMS tape, in BACKUP format, contains all
tools which run under VMS, including their binaries, as well
as  most  of  the machine readable integration documentation
which is available.

     This tape contains in VMS  BACKUP  format  the  current
collection  of tools in the Integration Tools Clearinghouse,
which is a function of the  Integration  Program  Office  of
Digital  Equipment  Corporation's  Large  Systems  Marketing
Group.  These tools are distributed on  an  "as  is"  basis;
Digital   makes  no  warrentee  as  the  the  correctnes  or
operation of any of these tools.  All tools are  distributed
as  received  from  their  various  sources,  along with any
updates that are made available.  

     The Tools on this tape are:

     1.  [777,777,COM20A]:  Command file library for TOPS20,
         version 1.  This implements many of the more common
         TOPS20 commands on VMS as .COM command files.

     2.  [777,777,COM10A]:  Command file library for TOPS10,
         version  1.   Similar  to  the  above  command file
         library, but for TOPS10 commands.

     It is expected that  when  others  make  modifications,
either  in  terms  of additional functionality or simply bug
fixes, that the new versions be sent  back  to  Digital,  so
that  the  most recent copies will be distributed to others.
The address to send such updates, as well as new  tools  for
submission to the Clearinghouse, is
