00100 Hi Rog --
00200 Nice to get your letter. Excuse me for saying I was grossed out
00300 with disbelief when it came in the mail.
00400 Does Maureen have money for coming here John thinks the E.E.
00500 dept. members will be happy to see her (less than 5 % females
00600 in the dept., he says).
00700 For listing files: TY <file> should work, otherwise
00800 COPY <your file>←<file> then ED <your file>
00900 and then (replying to the *) p should do it.
01000 (you can also use TECO to edit your file, of course, but
01100 I don't know how it interplays with the COPY routine --
01200 but you can also use DEC's own copying routine, too)
01300 Example: TY CHESS.AKC[UP,DOC] types the documentation for the
01400 chess program. To get your own copy,
01500 COPY ROGER←CHESS.AKC[UP,DOC] then edit the file if desired.
01600 R PARRY to get the paranoid.
01700 R DCHESS (not CHESS as it might say in the documentation) to play
01800 chess. Documentation in CHESS.AKC[UP,DOC].
01900 R INFO to play with an information retrieval system about SAIL.
02000 List PRUNE.DAT[1,3] to find all routines runnable with a R command,
02100 along with explanations. (Note: when it talks about III,
02200 that's a display processor here and those routines won't
02300 work on the NET line. Too bad.)
02400 Documentation for most routines mentioned is under [UP,DOC] .
02500 The documentation for the SOS editor is in SOS.LES[S,DOC].
02600 Various commands for SOS:
02700 p1000 means print line 1000
02800 p/2 means print page 2
02900 a100/2 means edit line 100, page 2
03000 e means exit
03100 eJUNK means exit and save in JUNK instead of the file you
03300 (Fooey on this. Read the documentation if you want to.)
03400 R BLACKJ for a blackjack prog which keeps track of w/l.
03500 R CHECKE for checkers.
03550 R APE for the Associated Press files editor.
03600 Can't think of anything else. Once you know how to read files,
03700 you can find it all out for yourself anyway.
03800 You may have heard that 500 yds of rte 1 is washed out. Also,
03900 earlier this winter, rte 140 (remember the road leading out of
04000 Yosemite∞ was landslided away. Good riddance.
04100 John suggests you pay his way to Utah.
04200 Is Data Logic still going to get a 10
04300 Good luck with this system. Don't work too hard. Say hi to all.
