Abstract
A timeshared microcomouter monitor for Intel b 6 microprocessor systems development has been described. Running on the Sycor 440 Clustered Terminal Processina System* the monitor provides a virtual environment comoosed of a console device* eight floorv disk drives* and an b y m i c roorocessor for up to four concurrent users. Virtual floppy disk files on a five meaabvte movable-head disk provide the system's primary auxiliary storaoe medium. Three different levels of access protection are available for these virtual flopoy disk images. A command 1 a n a u a q e processor has been included to support nn-line modification of the virtual environment. System recovery in the event of a hardware or software failure is also supported by the monitor.
