HP9000 - Motorola - Workstations
...long time ago, HP BASIC Software, an HP-IB Workstation and measurement/control cards - became an unbeatable team....
Enhanced with Assembly routines of hard-working programmer, improved by engineering, everything went like clockwork.
Today it's a dilemma for the responsable engineers.
No one is familiar anymore with these systems, or even able to guarantee data protection.
Documentation is unavailable, but the test bench is still needed sporadically.
Converting everything to actual standards seems to be obvious, but it is economically often a bottomless pit.
Possibly its more predictable and easier to calculate to preserve the old stuff.
