• Any chance of getting any Primos source for rev21 or beyond?

    From Andrew Marlow@21:1/5 to All on Sun Oct 24 05:02:13 2021
    Hello fellow Primates,

    AFAICS, Parametric, former owner of Prime Computer source code, are defunct. The ptc website exists but there is no mention of Prime or Primos. So I was wondering, does anyone know where one might obtain source code? The only source code I have seen,
    other than small utilities such as the Sheffield editor, is for rev19. I very want to get rev21, particularly the SPL code for the SIM commands. Any ideas?

    -Andrew M.

    Source code for layered products was not always available, and
    definitely not included with the V tape stuff that quite a few sites
    seem to have had. In this regard, I'm pretty sure DSM was treated like
    a layered product. Layered product source was on the D tape.

    I continue to hope that we can find some more tapes.

    There was a guy named Mike O'Rear who worked for Prime doing source maintenance, and he moved to Peritus
    when CVSI spun-off that activity. But the last time I contacted him, he said the tapes in his possession "fell apart".

    He lives in Tennessee, and he's on Facebook.

    I would be happy with some 19.X sources as that was the level I worked
    on sources for. Those were the days.

    The captive 19.2 stuff is substantial.
