Johnny,

Oh, I now got it.   I mean SYS specs, not MOP specs.  Is that TIN program 
available?

Thanks,
Tim

MOP headers no. But if you are referring to the .SYS files DEC distributed for 
things like DEC servers, which booted over MOP, those SYS files look like 
"normal" task files in RSX. Task files linked with no task header, though.

Example:
.tin sh1601ENG.SYS
TIN V1.7
Task name: SHAMRO Date: 21-MAY-96 Pri=0. Start=075000. EXTTSK=000000.
Label block revision: 0.
Task addresses - Low: 051000, W0 high: 177777, High: 177777 Load size: 02161400 
Max size: 02161400 # of window blocks: 1.
Task flags (040100): -HD -CHK
Partition: SYSTEM Offset: 000000
System ID: RSX-11M.


TIN is a small program I wrote a long time ago to analyze task images under RSX.

That file, for example, is for the DS300 (which has a 68000 CPU). And the RSX 
MOP server can service that file. VMS can serve it too. But this is totally 
outside the MOP protocol itself.

The MOP protocol is documented in various places as well, so if you want that, 
you can find it. But the .SYS files are images that are served by MOP. They are 
not verbatim MOP data.
