Dynix (software)

The earliest method was to have the entire system connected via RS ; there would be many muxes statistical multiplexers and many miles of serial lines. A specially-designed keyboard reduced the number of keys from to 83, mainly by removing all the function keys; this was designed to keep users out of the internal setup functions and other parts of the software they “weren’t supposed to be going”.

Shortly after Dynix started being deployed to libraries around the country, requests started coming back that alternate terminals be provided for patron use; children would bang on the splaris or throw books at the terminals, or use unauthorized key sequences to mess up the programming. For very small libraries, with perhaps only one or two terminals, there was Dynix Elite. Views Read Edit View history.


This saved a significant sum of money – millions of dollars, in the case of the largest installations – versus Dynix’s competitors, who required a separate server and copy of the software in each library branch. In the late s, Dynix was once again re-ported, this time for Windows NT -based servers; again, uniVerse acted as a Pick solarsi between the software and the operating system.
