Bring back...


(I once wrote a couple of hundred lines of menuing DCL to build the
Vax 11/7x0 diagnostic disks from the VAXPAX tape (or disk directory)
-- this was done during the 11/780 maintenance class while being
introduced to commands like copy, dir, etc ... (DEC "trained" me
on the Vax after three years doing Vax work and standby in NJ).

The instructor wanted it submitted to diagnostic engineering -- I
went back to NJ to finish the work off and get it cleaned up -- only to
find Filex was replaced with Exchange (no... not MS Exchange -- DEC got
screwed with that one later...) and my work was headed for oblivion.

Oh well...

I still want to type MCR SYE... to see an error log and MCR AUTHORIZE.
Too bad I can't run VMS 3.6 on a VaxStation 3100.
