The Current Status of the Project It would also be interesting to find listings of some of the other software that is part of the system: Dartmouth GAP and D-30 GAP, SYMMAINT, time-sharing Fortran, time-sharing LAFF (who can remember what LAFF was and the name of the woman, a Tuck student, who coded it), time-sharing DIP (who can remember what DIP was), the utility program that loaded the D-30 exec onto the disk, the D-30 boot paper tape.
NOTE: Dave Pearson has an answer to the query about LAFF: "I don't remember who coded it, but I remember that it was LAFFF, not LAFF -- Language to Aid Financial Fact Finders."
