View Full Version : MANX - A catalogue of online computer Manuals

Great Database of Computer Manuals (online/offline) -- great ressorce for all (wo)men searching. It currently covers DEC manuals only, but according to the homepage this should change:

At the moment, the database only contains manuals for DEC equipment, though this will be extended later.

The details of the online manuals are harvested from a number of other websites, owned by people who very generously spend their time scanning manuals and making them available to the rest of us. I can't completely automate the process of putting new manuals into the database, but I'm hoping to soon complete the scripts that will let me know when sites have changed.

Manx currently knows about 4537 manuals, 1568 of which are online, at 22 websites.

This could be the best ressource in years to come, so check it out.

Very nice. I got my VAX 4000/200 manual fairly quickly. :)

This was an old post, but those who haven't seen this site lately should have a look.
MANX lists a whole lot more than DEC manuals now.

That's handy to know about. I bookmarked it.

I even found a manual for a Televideo model 910 terminal that I want to repair! (hadn't looked until now, but still, cool!)
