I did look at the CONOLD and there didn't seem to be anything that would 
help (other than the bookshelf files).

There was the VTBOOK software on a DECUS release many years ago. It got 
stomped on for a while and then DEC gave up the fight against PDF and (I 
think) VTBOOK made it to the Freeware CD. That might help in working out 
the format.

I rather suspect that if I'd stopped the initial ddrescue when it was at 
99% and just gone straight to the 1500 grit sandpaper, then I could have 
saved my DVD-RW a few days of work.

I've just catalogued the VAX CONDIST/CONOLD sets I have and it comes in 
at 14 or so. I'm hoping that someone tells me that they're already 
archived before I start on those :-)
