00100 DFTP is the user program to store and retrieve files on the
00200 CCA Datacomputer. User files are compactified into a single
00300 Datacomputer file, called the "<FILES>", and are stored on the
00400 Ampex terabit mass memory in a similar data structure to a
00500 DECtape. (Looks like a TENEX directory to the user.)
00700 DFTP is documented in DFTP.MRC[UP,DOC]. For more
00800 information on DFTP, contact MRC. Other experienced users
00900 willing to answer simple questions or give an online demo:
01000 REM. To report a problem in DFTP, send mail to
01300 DCSTAT is the program to print the status of the Datacomputer.
01400 DC-203 (ie, the Datacomputer on the 203 socket at CCA) must be
01500 both "EXISTS" and "LISTENING" in order to access the
01600 Datacomputer. DC-303 is the older, obsolete Datacomputer.
01700 If DFTP behaves strangely, it is a good idea to run DCSTAT to
01800 see if the Datacomputer is still up.
