As I understand it, the UC Regents sold the rights to Softech, who
then sold it to Pecan. The PC version was from Softech.

HP sold a heavily modified version for the 9836, called the Pascal
Workstation, which was sold as an alternative to BASIC. CHM is in
the process of getting HP to grant us a non-commercial license for
the Pascal Workstation software. We have what survived from Colorado
Springs for the product, just have to get the paperwork finished and
the media holding the sources recovered.
