(2) Transfer your files over to the VAX to a special directory (prefarably not your root directory). Copy my LOGIN.COM file to give you a few extra UNIX commands, like MKDIR, RMDIR and CD. Usually FTP will be used to transfer files from your host to the JVNC VAX. Otherwise more elaborate programs like KERMIT or XMODEM are also available.
(3) Initialize IN EVERY NEW DIRECTORY you’re going to work with the CYBER 205 the PEP procedures by issuing PEP and follow it’s instructions. This is because PEP must make some INI file for you in that directory.
(4) Compile the source (PEPCL), put the datafiles on the 205 (PEPPUT) and run your program (PEPGO). A simple fortran program TEST.FOR will generate a series of VMS command procedures for compilation (TESTCL.COM generated by PEPCL) and running (TESTGO.COM generated by PEPGO). Of course you, the user, can edit these files later for a more flexible usage of the VAX-Cyber interaction. Type HELP PEP COMMANDS for a complete list of PEP procedures.

I had problems with emacs, but since I’ve always been a MicroEmacs user, my portable version (MEM) works fine for me. If however, you are going to use the real (supported) version of Emacs, be aware that the operating system (like on most VMS systems) intercepts the ^S-^Q as XON-XOFF, which means e.g. that you can’t (forward) find a string. Even worse, you can’t save a file, since this is ^X^S in emacs. (In MEM it is ESC-Z) I have been able to live with this by using ^R, backwards finding a string, in MEM. The JVNC staff gave me a file with rebindings for EMACS to redefine some of the VMS intercepted control characters.
Another solution is to set on every VMS link you use: SET TERM/NOTTSYNC (^S ^Q problem) SET TERM/PAST (^C problem with some connections)
