Systems software specialist Asna, based in Slough, Berkshire in the UK, has announced Termin8, a utility for IBM System 36, which overcomes the logistical problem of shutting down multiple terminals, which may be spread out in different departments and sites, without interfering with any work that is currently running on the system. Termin8 can be run within a procedure without operator intervention and can automatically shut down all programs, procedures and applications running on the system as well as printers and the job queue. It will only shut down programs which are in a wait state and won’t interrupt non-cancellable programs until they go into a wait state. This dedicated running mode is achieved by cancelling programs and then issuing a dynamic stop workstation command to all terminals on the system except the system console, which may then be used to run a dedicated program. Termin8 is available for a one-off UKP75 licence fee.
