Well, I didn't look in the right place. I just stumbled
across what I think is the full install of BYUMOVIE
4.3 from December 1982.
If anyone is interested, I could pack it up and send it to
you. This was for VAX/VMS. The directory contains 67 files.
Also, I have come across my own version of NASA's Mini-VICAR
program. Mini-VICAR was a ghastly hack of their image
processing library that used pre-allocated files on a
stripped-down file system to improve performance. So, your
files were named something like [100,103]. I took the
routines that I thought would be useful and modified them to
use ordinary Files-11 files on VMS, and used the Tparse
table-driven command line parser. I should have published
this on DECUS back in 1982 or so, but never got around to
it. Mostly, because I never wrote documentation for it.
(177 files, mixture of macro and fortran.)
