Abstract:
As Local Area Networks becoming increasingly popular, the need to develop protocols for remote login, client/server based peer to peer connections, and event driven windows protocol for IBM PC/PS2 is ever greater. This thesis is primary devoted to the development of a real-time multitasking system for the IBM PC/PS2, and a client/server, event driven Windows protocol similar to X-Window protocol available in computers based on Unix platform. In addition, features such as interprocess communication queues, virtual windows, heap managers which are necessities in a distributed environment are provided also. Program developer may include this multitasking program in the kernel of the PC network operating system such as Novell Netware, and Microsoft Lan Manager. Consequently, a multitasking kernel is developed to provide dynamic tasking spawning, fast task switching, and MS-DOS independent dynamic memory allocation. In addition, a window manager based on this multitasking kernel is developed to manage dialog windows or tasking windows in a distributed environment. Windows may be sent across the network and be displayed remotely.
