Well, actually it's pretty much "anything we can lay our hands on"
within an overall scope of "Danish computing (companies)".
The centrepiece will undoubtedly be the DASK and GIER computers
from "RegneCentralen" on which Brinck-Hansen and Peter Naur (as in
"B-N notation") did most of their work, but also "Christian Rovsing",
DDE and other companies are in our collection.
If any of you (especially the europeans) know of any old machines,
manuals, program listings or software from/by/on/for RegneCentralen
please contact me.
Our web-page is here, mostly in Danish:
Original English article about the Gier:
GIER simulator (windows or unix hosted)
And of course, the language specification which set the standard:
Poul-Henning Kamp | UNIX since Zilog Zeus 3.20
phk at FreeBSD.ORG | TCP/IP since RFC 956
FreeBSD committer | BSD since 4.3-tahoe
Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
