I just found some Philips P4000 (P4200/P4500/P4800) documentation here and though that someone might be interested in some scans.

The titles are :

- P4200/P4500 system operator's reference card
- P4000 Referentiehandleiding Bediening release 26
- P4000 Series COBOL reference booklet
- P4000 Series COBOL Reference Booklet

If anyone is interested I will scan them to PDF.

We have a complete machine, disks and all Operating Books etc.

Had it in one of our cupboards for more years than I can recall.

Have had it running, connected to a GP300 serial printer, which is a real animal in its own right.

Built by Philips Canada, it has a weird disk format. Philips at Colchester in the UK used to support it, but you're looking at late 80's to early 90's, nothing there now.

I was one of the team that ran the P4800 at Phillips, Colchester between 84 and 95. Great big removable disks - the whole thing needed a room of it's own! I loved it.
