I've got one. If there isn't already a scan available on the
HP Museum CD-ROM (not available online, but you can order it, see the
contents at www.hpmusum.org), let me know, and I'll scan it.

Depends on what computer you're using as the system controller, and
what you want to do with it. I've used it for very simple things with
my HP-41 as a controller, and I didn't need anything special. I just
put the 41 HP-IL into manual I/O mode, selected the device, and used
the "OUTA" command to send strings to the serial output. (This is
from memory from about four years ago, so I've probably got the details
