February 1984 to July 1985

My work revolved around a newsroom computer system.  Designed and implemented a generic wire copy program in C. Involved implementing a communications protocol between an X80 and an X8000 and data capture on an RX232 async port.
Designed and implemented a console multiplexer (in C) to monitor I/O ports on an IBM PC. Involved in writing a terminal emulator and rewriting and optimizing the ports drive in Intel 8088 assembler.
Revised the file system structure (ISAM) to utilize key compression, resulting in up to 70% space reduction.
