ELECTRIC Users' Manual

ELECTRIC was an in-house program used at the Rutherford Laboratory in Didcot, Oxfordshire (run by the Science Research Council, the UK agency responsible for publicly funded science and engineering research, which has since been renamed and merged a number of times) in the 1970s and possibly beyond.

From the preface:

'The ELECTRIC program gives terminal users of the Rutherford Laboratory's system 360/195 interactive facilities for file handling, job submission and output retrieval.  The program keeps files of information on disk and manipulates these files under the control of commands typed in by users working at terminals.'
