Summery of simple, scrollable VAX/VMS text viewers:

Hunter Goatley <goath…wkuvx1 bitnet>
pointed me to FLIST – “a TPU-based directory manager and file viewer.
It’s available by sending e-mail with the body SEND FLIST to
FILE…@WKUVX1.BITNET” and CSWING, which is “much more directory
tree-orientated than FLIST is, but it features tons more options.”

Terry Poot <t… mccall com>
pointed me to MOST – “very much like the unix more, less, and/or pg programs”

phyd… netcom COM
pointed me to MOST, “which should be available at most DECUS tape sites”

Arne Vajhxj Internet: ISI… ECOSTAT.AAU.DK
Pointed me to MORE

Kees Bol – Landbouwuniversiteit, Afd. I&D” <Kees… RCL.WAU.NL>
Sent me Fortran Source code for LIST
Here’s my dilemna: Our VAX Manager has removed all Compilers from this
System. LINK still works, but that is all. Apparently this is due to
the upgrade to 5.4-1, the new Micro-VAX, and possibly some new policy.

If someone could send me the .OBJ or the .EXE versions of any of the above,
I would appreciate it. I have found MOST, CSWING, and FLIST, so far,
but they all are source code, either C or Fortran. I am still searching
for MORE, but I should be able to find it, as soon as ARCHIE decides to
let me in :)

Thanks again, folks!
