Random information on the term “THE”:
The THE multiprogramming system was a computer operating system designed by a team led by Edsger W. Dijkstra, described in monographs in 1965-66 and published in 1968. Dijkstra never named the system; “THE” is simply the abbreviation of “Technische Hogeschool Eindhoven”, then the name (in Dutch) of the Eindhoven University of Technology of the Netherlands. The THE system was primarily a batch system that supported multitasking; it was not designed as a multi-user operating system. It was much like the SDS 940, but “the set of processes in the THE system was static”.
The THE system apparently introduced the first forms of software-based paged virtual memory (the Electrologica X8 did not support hardware-based memory management), freeing programmers from being forced to use actual physical locations on the drum memory. It did this by using a modified ALGOL compiler (the only programming language supported by Dijkstra’s system) to “automatically generate calls to system routines, which made sure the requested information was in memory, swapping if necessary”. Paged virtual memory was also used for buffering I/O device data, and for a significant portion of the operating system code as well as nearly all of the ALGOL 60 compiler. In this system itself, semaphores have been used as a programming construct for the first time.
