Scan of "The Segment System," Brown University Computer Center Technical Memorandum TM034. This document describes the 1978 version of the segment system that ran on IBM's VM/CP virtual machine operating system. It is an enhancement to the segment system described in the 1972 paper "The Segment Based File Support System" (search for it). Developed at Brown, the segment system allowed CP to allocate disk resources more efficiently among a large number of users.
