Design features of a real-time check-clearing system

by J. A. Banham, P. McClelland
Banking operations often require complex facilities for their data processing. The application required a multiprocessor configuration controlled by a single job step running continuously for many hours a day. Discussed are the special access methods and recovery procedures designed for this environment. The paper also describes a particularly efficient sorting technique evolved for handling large volumes of paper documents.
