File ADVENT.DC (file description)

This file as a plain text file

This version of adventure is based on the RT-11 version
by Bob Supnik. It is essentially a recoding of the FORTRAN-IV
sources into RALF code. The RALF code has been  optimized
to fit into 32K. Also, many modifications were made to
the code to increase execution speed.

   Because it is based on the RT-11 version of ADVENTURE,
the following features of the FORTRAN-10 version are not

1) MAGIC mode was removed
2) The SUSPEND and HOURS commands were deleted

   The program requires a secondary storage device with
at least 250 blocks of free space for working storage.
Included with the sources are batch stream files for
compiling and loading the program.




.SUBMIT LOAD	(this creates a load map - LOAD.LS)


*ADVENT.ld	(the ".LD" is optional)
*dev:TEXT.TX/1	(where "dev" is the device where "TEXT.TX"
*dev1:DATA/2<	(the secondary text storage file)
*$		(altmode or escape)

	execution proceeds.

   When started, the program will take approximately
two to three minutes to set up its data base (DATA).
Initialization and execution can be optimized by placing
the data file (DATA) on a different device from the text
file (TEXT.TX). Also, it is more efficient to have the
load module (ADVENT.LD) on a different device than the
data file (DATA). For a two-drive DECtape system, for
example, put ADVENT.LD and TEXT.TX on SYS:, have DATA
written on DTA1:.
*$		(Execution).

   To run the program, only the files ADVENT.LD and
TEXT.TX need to be copied from the distribution tape.
These are the load module and the text file. The rest
of the files are sources.

Good luck and happy adventuring!
