Reviving the 1973 Unix Programmer's Manual

Un pezzo di storia è stato ricreato (ricompilato?) in forma PDF:

The 1973 Fourth Edition of the Unix Programmer's Manual doesn't seem
to be available online in typeset form. This is how I managed to
recreate it from its source code.

La man page di 'cc' occupa mezza(!) pagina e non lista bachi. Il
commando 'cd' si chiamava 'chdir' allora.

How to communicate through your terminal. When you type to UNIX, a
gnome deep in the system is gathering your characters and saving them
in a secret place. The characters will not be given to a program until
you type a return (or new-line), as described above in Logging in.

Bellissimo. :slight_smile:

Grazie!

Davvero un documento importante.
Interessanti le note esplicative che mostrano come codice datato di 44 anni
sia attuale e funzionante.
