How was VMS distributed? I've got a blue box that
says "OpenVMS" and
contained a "wallet" of CD-ROMS with VMS for Alpha and VMS for VAX. There
is one VAX-VMS Binraries CD and one that is labelled "Layered Products 1 of
1" and the VMS FreeWare 2.0 CD. I'm looking for the C, Fortran, and PASCAL
compilers. But they don't appear to be on either of these disks. Was there
another CD with even more layered products on it?
A complete condist (consolidated distribution) for VMS 7.0 is, I believe,
If you get the hobbyist CD's through the OpenVMS hobbyist program
) the "layered product" CD that comes with it
is a "best of" from all the condist CD's, carrying what someone thought
a hobbyist would be most likely to want. Many of the compilers are there.
