I've assembled some notes from old manuals and other sources
on the formats used for on-disk file systems through the
Additional notes, comments on style, and whatnot are welcome.
(It may be sensible to send anything in the last two categories
directly to me, rather than to the whole list.)
Whilst looking for a recent AUUGN mine eyes espied a pile of old AUUGNs,
from Vol 1 No 1 (October 1978) to Vol 3 No 6 (Aug/Sep 1981). And I know I
have the rest of them somewhere, but they're probably packed away.
It contains the famous Thrust Meter, a few papers by Yours Truly, and I
think it has the short assembly program that would bring a PDP-11/70 to
its knees (the infamous "SPL" firmware bug).
Free to an *organisation* that can use them, on condition they never get
chucked out and are available for viewing (even if as a PDF). Due to a
"senior moment" I've already made this offer to AUUG.
Nice to meet you all.I am a new comer from ChengDu,China.I am very
interested in Unix and PDP an now I am reading the book <Lions'
Commentary on UNIX 6th Edition with Source Code> ,which make me so
excited.It's indeed an great book for me to understand the principle and
detail of the UNIX, however, I am a self-learner without chance to
discuss with others around me, so I am glad to join you and have a
chance to learn from all of you. Thanks!
