The manual says it was known as OSMI 2000 FORTRAN and was a "series of programs written in the BASIC language which run short FORTRAN programs"

I still have a few hp2000 systems running. I haven't seen the fortran one yet but would be surprised if it wasn't on one of my HIB tapes. But I do remember having this on the HP2K systems I used in high school. There was also a free contributed library COBOL runtime that was the same deal (implemented in BASIC), and there was one in the CSL that also ran HP 2100 assembler. That last one I'd love to find just to pour through the listings 😃

Ed# I thought the only thing preventing you from getting one of your systems up was memory, which I offered to fix. You need a tape drive too? I may have a spare 7970B that needs work but I really need to get down there and do an inventory....
