The 4662 was considerably more popular than Tek's computers and calculators, I
think, but that doesn't mean there are loads of them out there...

Programmer's Reference is the manual I have. Mine is a photocopy of a
pre-release draft, I think, but it fulfils its function pretty well, so I won't
ask you to send me your copy unless the only alternative is the trash.
Operator's I may also have. Probably won't tell me much of use anyway.
