One of these is now in the London Science Museum; the other is in the Berlin Postal Museum. It is still not uncommon, though less frequent, that railway signaling procedures are revised after a major accident has demonstrated that unlikely events do occur in practice. The cause of even minor railway accidents is usually studied in great detail and well documented; see for instance Nock [1967], Rolt [1976], Schneider and Mase [1968], and Shaw [1978]. Much is also known about the sometimes elaborate drum signaling methods used by African and Australian tribes and the smoke and fire signals of the American Indians.

For an overview see, for instance, Rockstrom and Saracco [1982] and SDL [1987]. The official SDL language definition is in CCITT [1988]. The flow charting ‘‘language’’ used here is more fully described in Appendix B. 3, is Kernighan and Ritchie [1978, 1988]. W. Dijkstra [1968a, 1968b, 1969a, 1969b, 1972, 1976] and N. Wirth [1971, 1974]. They are closely related to the technique of design by stepwise refinement Wirth [1971], see also Gouda [1983]. F. Moore. ’’ (Moore [1956]) The ideas on protocol design expressed here are also inspired by discussions with many others, most notably Jon Bentley, John Chaves, Peter van Eijk, Rob Pike, and Chris Vissers.

Next, character codes can be grouped into message fields, and message fields into frames or packets, each with a specific meaning and structure. The error control methods required in a protocol depend on the specific properties of the transmission medium used. This medium may insert, delete, distort, or even duplicate and reorder messages. Depending on the specific behavior, the protocol designer can devise an error control strategy. The protocol descriptions we have discussed so far have been fairly informal and fragmented.
