The DR PL/I was a PL/I subset G compiler, whereas the VMS PL/I is a full
implementation. PL/I was the Ada of the 1960's; enormous with every programmer
using a different subset.
The DR compiler was still being sold as late as 1983. I have a manual for
it somewhere, though I don't have the software.
