VME was good, too. Compiled scripts (procedures), an ALGOL derived
scripting language (SCL) at least as good as VMS's dcl, optional command
templates, data dictionary, and screen handling that reveals CICS as the
dogs breakfast that it is. Crummy screen editors, can't beat VMS on
that, though I have yet to find a line editor as powerful.
