I wish that I kept all of the Honeywell docs that I had. I gave most of
what I had to the Boston Computer Museum, so it might be a the CHM.
I maintained GECOS and the front end software on a Level 66, with DN355,
and 716 front ends. The software modifications to the DN355 were done under
contract by Honeywell in Bedford, MA. The 355 and 716s were replaced by a
pair Level 6 front ends. I still have the platter from one of the fixed
head disks from the 716. If I remember correctly, the 16-bit Level 6 front
ends ran modified microcode to make it 18-bits by using the parity bits.
