Transaction Processing Facility
<operating system> (TPF) A real-time mainframe operating system released
by IBM around 1976. TPF is particularly suited to organisations dealing in very
high I/O message switching and large global networks. Current users include
British Airways (reservations), VISA International (authorisations), Holiday
Inn, and Quantas.

4.1, contains C. Formerly known as ACP (Airline Control Program), it was renamed
"TPF" to suggests its greater scope.
It is common for TPF sites to use IBM's MVS and VM operating systems for
