Neat! Excellent! Do you have the source for any/all of the software on it?
Not for any of the commercial software, but there are a bunch of example/demo applications
(mainly to show how to program for the Dor? graphics environment) that come with source.
The MATLAB extension to use Dor? graphics consists of a bit that's built into MATLAB
and a separate display server that MATLAB connects to when you use the render function.
The source for the display server is provided so you can customize it. There's also a
fair bit of user-written code in the user directories on one the backup tapes, but I am
seeking permission from the institute the machine came from first before I start looking
for interesting bits of code in there.
The OS came with a C compiler, and a vectorizing FORTRAN compiler - bought from Convex -
was available as a separate (and expensive) option. Fortunately, my system came with the
vectorizing FORTRAN compiler.
