Re Heriot-Watt stripped-down 7th Edition...
Anybody in the UK able to read Pete's tape? Pete,
can you kermit the files
off those RL02s?
I did once attempt to read the tape on our department's Kenedy drive
(now disposed of) and managed to get all but a few blocks near the
beginning. It seems to be a pretty standard distribution tape, with a
layout as described in the Unix Programmer's Manual Vol.2 (Jan.1979).
I have a 1600bpi copy (modulo the bad blocks) somewhere (I wonder where
I put it?). I wouldn't bother about making another copy; if anyone
deparately wants to try, I guess I might loan the original. But AFAIK
there's only a couple of Makefiles that differ, and I have those on the
I don't have any version of kermit that will run under 7th Edition on
an 11/23 (the normal versions are too big), but text files are perfectly
easy to copy.
