You could add "/CLI=MCR" to your login name, or even have your account
set to MCR as the default command language interpreter. With that, you
were even supposed to be able to do a complete SYSGEN for RSX-11.
This was my first attempt at SYSGEN, but I only found out I know so
little about SYSGEN that I better go for the real machine in order to
BTW, OpenVMS on today's Alphas doesn't come with an MCR.EXE (or even
MCR.TSK ;-) anymore, but you can (in DCL) still say MCR <filename>, and
this will run SYS$SYSTEM:<filename>.EXE, passing remaining command line
arguments to the program. Try, for example, MCR AUTHORIZE SHOW/BRIEF
SYSTEM (requires SYSPRV) or MCR NCP SHOW KNOWN LINES.

On an 11/780 for one, you could say "MCR PDP" IIRC
and do some basic operations. I think it was intended
to help people do porting without having to have the
other machine present.
