InfoConnect ALC is a terminal emulation program that makes your PC operate like an ALC terminal. When you run ALC, your PC can communicate with a Computer Reservation System (CRS) such as Amadeus, Apollo, SABRE, and Shares.
ALC runs within Accessory Manager. The relationship between the two is similar to the relationship between a document and a word processor. When you run a word processor, you have a single application window, and no matter which document you open, there are functions that are common to all the documents. Likewise, when you run Accessory Manager, you have a single application window, and no matter which terminal emulation session you open, there are functions that are common to all the emulators.
Just as a word processor can open multiple documents at once, Accessory Manager can open multiple terminal emulation sessions at once. For example, using Accessory Manager, you can open one session using ALC to connect to a Computer Reservation System, then open a second session using UTS to connect to a Unisys ClearPath IX series or 1100/2200 Series host. Or you can open multiple sessions using one emulator, such as four sessions using ALC.
ALC also provides the following features:
Five different column/row combinations for the display
Default terminal keystrokes that let you perform ALC functions
A pre-defined keyboard map
