I think this is likely to be source listings (ie the assembler/compiler output
after assembling/compiling the actual source code), at least that's what I have.
Some people seem to try to pass these listings off as actual source code in
order to command a higher price for them on ebay and the like.  I'm not sure
but I don't think DEC made the actual source code available, at least not for a
price that ordinary customers could afford.

Source listings for some (later?) versions are available on CD which is much
easier to deal with than microfiche.
