Seemed like a lot at the time! I think the $295 price was for a one
year extension of the warranty on PL/M-80 and it covered updates. The
compiler itself was $2000 if I remember. Intel's tools were very
expensive. But they were intended for companies that were making
products to sell. You know how businesses charge other businesses lots

I will start scanning the PL/M-80 syntax manual next week. It is the
largest of the manuals. After that I'll work on the compiler operator's

PL/M was my favorite language. In those days I was designing and
programming control and data acquisition systems for automotive R&D.
How do you have Intel compilers and assemblers running on the Imsai?
You must have ISIS-II running on it. How much work was that to do?
