Abstract

Presented in this thesis is an operating system that is designed for teaching minicouputer operating system fundamentals. With a minimum investment in a miniconputer, software support is needed to provide aids for student training in the development of programs. This TTYOS operating system is developed to meet that need. The computer used is a Texas Instruments Model 960A processor with 8K memory, two cassette tape drives, an interval timer, and a teletype. Major functions included in this operating system are input/output supervision, interrupt handling, program debugging, operator communication, storage assignment, and other utility services. A programmer User's Manual and a Source Listing of this operating system are included.
