I must be mad – going back in a timewarp to my first job – programming on a DEC PDP 11/34

So anyway I needed to do a DCL script for openVMS – which is still alive apparently.  So using FreeAXP and openVMS – I managed to get a VMS session up again.

Why people think VMS is good in the world of Unix and Windows is beyond me.  Navigating around the filesystem is just plain confusing.  But I was able to boot it up and get it working – so all credit to those folks at FreeAXP – works fine for me.

SO I’m writing DCL again…

Maybe I’m in dreamland…
