Jerome Fine replies:

I have never seen any documentation for this.  I though
I remember seeing that the .Fetch EMT rejects a request
from a job that is not the background job (zero).

In addition, where is the device driver code to be placed,
especially if a background job is already running which
would often be the case?

Also, I asked about the possibility of DU(X).SYS having
128 or even 256 units.  Did you miss that question?

Sincerely yours,
