When someone mentioned that they'd ported V6 to the 11/23, I recalled that
I did the same thing (well, V6 + the bits of AUSAM that I liked + the bits
of V7 that I could shoe-horn in), and went looking for the article that I
could've sworn I'd published, using "pdfgrep 23 AUUGN*" in my TUHS mirror.
And yes, I recall some hardware peculiarity which had to be worked around,
but I've forgotten the details (which is why I went looking).
I didn't find it (is there an index of articles anywhere?), but I did find
some peculiar typos, and I was wondering whether they were a result of
Google's (destructive) scanning, or were in the originals.
Here's a quick sample:
AUUGN-V04.5.pdf: tailored for smaller. PDP11s (such as the 11/23 or 11/34) in an
A period after "smaller".
AUUGN-V04.6.pdf: Unfortunately. the clever Code comes unstuck as the LSI-II/23 doesn't’t
The phrase "Unfortunately. the clever Code" looks wrong.
AUUGN-V04.6.pdf:LSI-II/23 was changing the value of r! if the V-bit gets set. It seemed
"r!" should be "r1" (a possible typo, as they are the same key)..
AUUGN-V04.6.pdf: bio23 (662 2668) Elec. Eng., UNSW,
This is a weirdie; "bio23" (one of my clients) was never a part of Elec
Eng (they were their own school), so I suspect a mistake here; it's
possible, however, that they were in the same building.
AUUGN-V04.6.pdf: PDP 11/23 + FPU. RK05, RL02, DRIIb
I believe that "DR11b" should be "DR11B".
AUUGN-V05.1.pdf: PDP 11/23 - System III (Ausam)., 256k, 2xR102, 16 lines
AUSAM under System III, on a mere 11/23? I very much doubt it... Also,
"R102" should probably be "RL02".
AUUGN-V05.1.pdf: PDP 11/23, Q bus + qniverter, RK05, Pertec dual RK05, DEC dual cassette,
I suspect that "qniverter" was a typo on the part of the author.
As a bit of a Unix historian it would be a shame if those AUUGN scans were
less than accurate; I no longer have my hard copies (lost in a house
move), so perhaps someone could check their copies?
