Bead Services

An interim monitor available in 1969 and '70 had been called the Bead. We felt it necessary to continue the services provided by that monitor and placed the necessary code in this subprocess. Also, Bead Services supplied a number of specialized services for the command processor, such as recording charges against a users funds.
