We've been recovering a 1980s programming language implemented using a
mix of Pascal and C that ran on 4.1 BSD on VAX.
The Makefile distributed to around 20+ sites included these lines for
the C compiler.
It seems there was a (common?) practice of keeping around the old C
compiler when updating a BSD system and occ was used to reference it.
Anyone care to comment on this observation? was it specific to
BSD-land? how was the aliasing effected, a side-by-side copy of the
compiler pieces? As at 4.1 BSD the C compiler components were in /lib
(Pascal though was in /usr/lib).
