The first release of the ISO Development Environment at NRTC is
available for distribution. This release is called
This software supports the development of certain kinds of
ISO/CCITT/ECMA protocols and applications.
Here are the details:
- ISODE is not proprietary, but it is not in the public domain.
This was necessary to include a "hold harmless" clause in the
release. The upshot of all this is that anyone can get a
copy of the release and do anything they want with it, but
no one takes any responsibility whatsoever for any (mis)use.
- ISODE runs on native 4.2BSD and SVR2 with an Excelan card
(Future releases will support VAX/VMS and a variant of PC/IP.)
- Current modules include:
TSAP - makes TCP look like TP4
SSAP - ISO BCS session
PSAP - ASN.1 encoding
PEPY - ASN.1 yacc-like facility
RoSAP - ECMA Remote Operations Services
- Although the ISODE is not "supported" per se, it does have a
problem-reporting address, problem-reporting address, ISO-People@NRTC.NORTHROP.COM. Bug
reports (and fixes) are welcome by the way.
The primary documentation for this release consists of a User's
Manual (approx 150 pages) and a set of UNIX manual pages. The
sources to the User's Manual are in LaTeX format. In addition,
there are a number of notes, papers, and presentations included in
the documentation set, again in either LaTeX or SLiTeX format.
There are two ways to get a distribution:
1. If you can FTP to the ARPA Internet, use anonymous FTP to
louie.udel.edu [10.0.0.96] and retrieve the file portal/isode-1.tar.
This is a tar image (approx 2.0MB). The file portal/isode-1.tar.Z is
the tar image after being run through the compress program (approx 0.8MB).
2. Send a magtape and a self-addressed mailing label to:
Northrop Research and Technology Center
Attn: Automation Sciences Laboratory (0330/T30)
One Research Park
Palos Verdes Peninsula, CA 90274
We will write the tape in tar format at 1600bpi, and return it with
a copy of the User's manual.
