Well, knowing the degree of burocratism especialley in indian customs, I doubt
very much if it will ever pass the border of this country again....

given the information that he has 8" diskettes, it will not be a PRO350.

If he uses MCR on RSX, then shouldn't the command should be like:
MCR>[1,54]pip [*,*]kerm*.*,* /li

ofcourse, if a catchall is active, it would pass the dir command eventually to
DCL as well, but I don't think this will happen if you enter the comand to the
explicit MCR> prompt
(You are then talking to your own copy of MCR, just for you. And the catchall
is not installed by default as far as I remember...)
