The 'occam 2 toolset user manual' is a combined user and reference guide to the occam 2 toolset.

Part 2 'occam libraries and appendices' (this book) provides a detailed description of all the libraries supplied with the toolset. Technical reference data is given in the appendices at the end of this book which also includes a glossary of terms and a short bibliography.

A description of the toolset and how it is used to develop and run transputer programs is given in Part 1 'User guide and tools' (72-TDS-275-02).

References which span the two parts, take the form of a part number followed by a chapter or section number. Each part contains its own index.

This manual does not contain details of how to install the software, which is to be found in the Delivery Manual that accompanies the shipment.

Host versions

The manual is designed to cover all host versions of the toolset:

  • IMS D7205 - IBM and NEC PC running MS-DOS
  • IMS D5205 - Sun 3 systems running SunOS
  • IMS D4205 - Sun 4 systems running SunOS
  • IMS D6205 - VAX systems running VMS
