I have one of the AB processor units from a 7320 system. The 3264 
Industrial Processor. I have spare boards and front panels also.
Was there ever any general purpose software available for it? BASIC, 
FORTRAN, assembler/editor/linker stuff? It would be fun to
get it running if there was something fun it could be used for.
