I haven't heard much talk about DOS-11 or DOS/BATCH (same thing?) on the
various lists. Is that because nobody cares to mess with it, or is it
because it and its manuals are unobtanium?

I have about 200 or so DECtapes that came with my 11/20, and I believe that
DOS-11 and several versions of FORTRAN-11 are stored on them. The previous
owner also believed that he left DOS-11 running in the core as well. This is
going to be a fun machine to play with when I get around to it.
