Timeline of "MCP"
My Early Career
I was a systems programmer in a Burroughs shop as my second job out of college. The first referent of the acronym is the operating system of the same name.
In my current efforts, MCP is the operating system abstraction on a single node of a cluster, or cloud of computers with fast interconnectivity, miniminally 1 gigabit per second. The MCPs operate as the nodes of a larger OS construct, the DCP or domain control program. MCP itself has these components/layers:
- The top level which is a lisp image running a generic blackboard model of realtime operatons control.
- The workflow level which is implemented by the Work Flow Language, another Burroughs inspiration, reimagined as a context for literate programming and revival of the job control concept based on a generalization of the algol wiffle.
- A modified linux kernel to support the above.
