Something that has itched at the back of my mind for decades, related
to this topic:
What was used to produce many of the S/360 "programming" manuals? An
example is the DOS F-level assembler:
These are clearly typewritten (not typeset) in a monospaced font. My
own copy dates from a couple of years earlier (than this 1968 copy)
but has a similar appearance.
Anyone know for certain?
Even these "programmer's manuals" were superbly done, when compared
to some of the Univac documenation of the same period, run off on a
badly-timed drum printer (made my eyes hurt to read it).
