    "so it actually has two processors"

Is that true? I haven't had time to make a detailed study of the
PDP-12 logic design, but my understanding was that unlike the LINC-8,
which basically was two separate processors mashed together, the
PDP-12 was a single integrated processor with two modes (PDP-8 and
LINC). I was told that there were some commonalities that were taken
advantage of, such that merging it resulted in reduction of the total
logic necessary as compared to the LINC-8.
