ABSTRACT

        SYSDEP  provides GET, PUT, and IS_VALID_CHARACTER as basic I/O
routines which are defined as follows:
        GET  -  return the next character from the console without any
interpretation (all 128 ASCII characters may be input with  exceptions
as  noted  by  IS_VALID_CHARACTER)  and  without  echo
        PUT  -  output  the indicated character without interpretation
        This simple pair of defined functions permits a more  flexible
and constant I/O configuration than that provided by TEXT_IO and opens
up the door to future tools written in  Ada,  such  as  communications
servers.   Adaption of SYSDEP to interface thru CAIS definitions, when
such definitions are established and placed in use, can be done  at  a
later  time.  OPEN_CONSOLE and CLOSE_CONSOLE must be called before the
first use of PUT or GET and after the last use of PUT or GET, resp.
