Yes, the good old days of DCL!  It seemed fairly robust in those days
with its capability to implement functions and all.  Between DCL and
EVE, I felt pretty powerful back then :)  Although, I loathe to admit
that the first thing I did with EVE was to try and make it work like
TECO, but now I am really dating myself :)

If I can only get my copy of VTTREK up and running again!
