The first disk of every ConDist has the all paperwork on it as postscript
and text files. You can print it out again if you lose it :-) I believe the
'94 and '96 ConDists both have APL on them.

Yes it does, however I am dearly afraid that with HP and Compaq doing the
dance that the lore of such things will be permanently lost at some point.
If Compaq would just say "screw it, the next time someone requests a
license give them a non-expiring one." my heart would rest easier...
