       mkconf - generate configuration tables


       Mkconf examines a machine configuration table on its standard input.  Its output is a pair
       of files l.s and c.c.  The first is an assembler program  that  represents  the	interrupt
       vectors located in low memory addresses; the second contains initialized block and charac-
       ter device switch tables.

       Input to mkconf is a sequence of lines.	The following describe devices on the machine:

	    pc	 (PC11)
	    lp	 (LP11)
	    rf	 (RS11)
	    hs	 (RS03/RS04)
	    tc	 (TU56)
	    rk	 (RK03/RK05)
	    tm	 (TU10)
	    rp	 (RP03)
	    hp	 (RP04/5/6)
	    ht	 (TU16)
	    dc*  (DC11)
	    kl*  (KL11/DL11-ABC)
	    dl*  (DL11-E)
	    dp*  (DP11)
	    dn*  (DN11)
	    dh*  (DH11)
	    dhdm*     (DM11-BB)
	    du*  (DU11)

       The devices marked with * may be preceded by a number telling how many are to be included.
       The  console  typewrite	is automatically included; don't count it as part of the KL or DL
       specification.  Count DN's in units of 4 (1 system unit).

       The following lines are also accepted.

       root dev minor
	    The specified block device (e.g.  hp) is used for the root.  minor is a decimal  num-
	    ber giving the minor device.  This line must appear exactly once.

       swap dev minor
	    The specified block device is used for swapping.  If not given the root is used.

       pipe dev minor
	    The specified block device is used to store pipes.	If not given the root is used.

       swplo number

       nswap number
	    Sets  the  origin (block number) and size of the area used for swapping.  By default,
	    the not very useful numbers 4000 and 872.

       pack Include the packet driver.	By default it is left out.

       mpx  Include the multiplexor driver.  By default it is left out.

       l.s, c.c  output files

       `Setting up Unix', in Volume 2.

       The set of devices it knows about, the set of drivers included, and the set of devices  on
       the machine are mutually incomparable.  Some handwork is certain to be necessary.  Because
       of floating vectors that may have been missed, It is mandatory to check the  l.s  file  to
       make sure it corresponds with reality.
