Ouch. Is that a true story?
While we're remeniscing about bad typos and DEC, I should tell the
story about the guy who clobberred his work because his English wasn't
Under RT-11, all file management was handled by a program called PIP.
For example to get a list of files in the current working directory you
would enter PIP *.* /LI . Well this fellow, from one of those countries
where our long "e" sound is their "i" sound, mournfully announced
"I vanted a deerectory so I typed 'PIP *.* /DE' "
That one is true.
