I have been intending to ask Al Kossow if he has been
able to scan copies of the various RT-11 DOC sets.
However, it seems a bit unreasonable to attempt to
scan anything except the latest versions - which are
still copyright - except that it may no longer be possible
to purchase them from Mentec (has anyone recently tried?)
In that situation, DEC always allowed out of print manuals
to be copied - especially if the user already owned a valid
RT-11 license. If the intended use was non-commercial,
DEC also seemed agreeable, however, now that Mentec/HP are
involved, the situation may be very different.
Note that a complete RT-11 DOC set was about 10,000 pages
starting with V05.00 of RT-11. For V05.06 of RT-11, there
were 13 binders. V05.07 was almost identical with the ONLY
difference being the name "COMPAQ" on the heavy paper front
page with the window AND the V05.07 Release Notes - otherwise,
all of the rest of the DOC set was identical to V05.06 DOC set
As for the SRC fiche, it would be interesting to see if they
are the same as the SRC distribution set of files for V05.04
of RT-11. Although the actual files are much more useful, the
fiche do serve as a hard copy backup. Is there any way that
a small file could be used as a comparison?
If you attempted to send a reply and the original e-mail
address has been discontinued due a high volume of junk
e-mail, then the semi-permanent e-mail address can be
obtained by replacing the four characters preceding the
'at' with the four digits of the current year.
