Yep: I remember those days and the twelve foot long tables filled with manuals and the first three feet of manuals were the indexes.

Then when you found the right section it didn't explain exactly what you wanted: How would I branch this command? Do I need to terminate this hardware string with a terminal bus or a loop?

Maybe those were the REALLY old days of computers.

Old timers would look at me like I was missing a few needed pieces of gray matter but helped out. I later did the same, in return, for the new guys.

You still have to RFTM but there is nothing like human input.

Take care,
