I just received permission this morning from S&H to release TSX Plus 6.5,
RTSORT and COBOL and their associated documentation to the PDP-11 collector
community for non-commercial use.
I'm in the process of working with other folks to determine the best way to
support the distribution under a non-commercial "license". Be a bit patient
while we work out the details.
For those who aren't familiar with S&H's very cool PDP-11 products, here's a
TSX Plus - enables multiuser, multiterminal RT (you must already have a copy
of RT to implement this product)
RTSORT - the fastest sort program available for the PDP-11. Sorting used to
be a major function in commercial data processing (and still is in mainframe
"Batch" processing). RTSORT ran circles around Digital's own sort package.
COBOL - the big deal is that while DEC's COBOL required careful planning of
overlays - S&H's COBOL did automatic virtual handling of memory - so one
could take off-the-shelf IBM COBOL programs and run them on a DEC systems
without the need to modify them for "overlays".
Be assured that we will expedite this release as soon as reasonably possible.
Please do not ask me privately for a copy of these products in the meantime.
