Ref cite tag.[edit]

Really the only authoritative cites here will be Unisys Clear Path Enterprise Server documents CANDE Operations and Reference Manual and the Editor Operations Cuide which like as not have same-named Burroughs era predecessors. Prolly some secondary sources, but they're unlikely to be anything more than superficial mentions. 74.78.162.229 (talk) 04:13, 12 July 2008 (UTC)



Calling it anachronistic today is an understatement - it was already anachronistic when I wrote it. The MCS control facilities were necessarily new, but there was an excellent (for its day) editor already in wide use on the B5500. Unfortunately I'd never used a time sharing system, and so I made the underlying model for CANDE be the boxes of punch cards that we (the B6500 software team) used for day-to-day programming. Oh well :-) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Igodard (talkcontribs) 03:28, 2 September 2008 (UTC)
