I had a quick look at 6_0.bin. It has a normal layout, 1 boot sector to
start with, 1 user, 3 files. two of which are Load Modules (= programs),
the last one is a textfile with paramters etc. The program seems to be
for testing something, accordng to the texts I found. My guess is that
the user communication is to and from a Teletype ASR or Philips PER3100
operator console or similar.
Could I talk you into zipping the contents of that directory and mail it
to me, or save it as one zip file in that directory?
