Note from the editor:
This article is part of a collection of articles because of its historic
importance: this is the first time that piping in a software environment
is spoken of.
Summary--what's most important
To put my strongest concerns in a nutshell :
1, We should have some ways of coupling programs like
garden hose--screw in another segment when it
becomes necessary to massage data in another
2, Our loader should be able to do link-loading end controlled establishment,
3, Our library filing scheme should allow for rather general indexing, responsibility, generations, data path switching,
4, It should be possible to get private system components (all routines are sytem components) for buggering around with.
