View Full Version : Want to assemble USCD p-system for the IBM PC one of the 3 originals OSs for the 5150

I am trying to assemble a complete 6 disk and 5 manual set UCSD p-system sometimes refered to as UCSD pascal-system. I have the IBM boxed manuals Beginners guide 6936580 , the Pacal compiler 6024033 (still shirkwrapper) and the fortran compiler 6024034. I have the disks Sytstem-2 6936534, the pascal disk 6936500, Fortran-77 6936510, the pascal compiler which is different from the pascal disk not sure what the number on this disk is since it is still shrink wrapped.

I belive the IBM product number origially for the UCSD -system with pascal was 6024016 and retailed at $625.00. With Fortran I believe the number was 6024017 and also retailed at $625.00. I think the product was actually Softech Microsystems Version IV.0 rebranded by IBM.

Here is an article from the NSA that has been de-classified. http://www.nsa.gov/public_info/_files/cryptologic_quarterly/The_UCSD_p_System.pdf

I would appreciate any help and guidenance with this project.
