HELP PROCESS                            Steven Hardy, March 1982

POP-11 provides a PROCESS facility for creating processes that can
be run, resumed, suspended, scheduled, etc.

A process is created with * CONSPROC or CONSPROC_TO. It can be
activated with * RUNPROC, * RESUME, or * KRESUME. Once active, a process
can suspend itself with * SUSPEND, * KSUSPEND.

A process can be recognized with * ISPROCESS. A dead process can be
recognized with ISLIVEPROCESS.

A process can save its state in a process record with * SAVEPROC.
Process records can be copied with * COPY.

See REF * PROCESS, for more details.
