operating system (TPF) A real-time mainframe operatingsystem released by IBM around 1976. TPF is particularly
suited to organisations dealing in very high I/O message
switching and large global networks. Current users include
British Airways (reservations), VISA International
(authorisations), Holiday Inn, and Quantas.
TPF was traditionally a 370/Assembler environment although
the latest, release 4.1, contains C. Formerly known as ACP
(Airline Control Program), it was renamed "TPF" to suggests
its greater scope.
