Abstract:
This memo describes a practical application within the framework of the ARPA computer network of the philosophy that a fully developed computer network should appear as a virtual extension of the user's own software environment. The application involves the design and implementation of a software facility that will permit users at MIT's Dynamic Modeling System to consider the retrieval component of the Datacomputer (developed and run by the Computer Corporation of America) as an extension of the Muddle environment. This facility generates efficient Datalanguage retrieval codes, handles inter-process control of the Datacomputer, and manages all the necessary network connections.
