DECword/DP on RSTS/E and Micro-RSTS, my notes say it made it to at least v1.2.  On CTS-300 you had DECtype.  There were also third party options.  Unfortunately I'm not aware of any copies of the software that have been preserved.

Once upon a time, there was an unbelievable amount of software available for the PDP-11, we only have a tiny fraction of it still available.  There is a lesson in this.

Is this when I mention that I'm still searching for DECnet for RT-11.
