The 8100 Information System and the Distributed Processing Programming Executive, DPPX, have been designed to serve as a distributed processor, with objectives aligned to meet specific requirements considered to be essential forc e an trally managed and controlled distributed system. The functional contenotf the operating system reflects these objectives. Further, the structure of the system, including formal layering, functional isolation and formalization of interfaces, and a structured approach to implementing binding functions lends DPPX pervasive characteristics that are considered necessary for a distributed system.
