I am trying (at least) to do something on logicals.

But first we might need some structure and basics.

The original structure seemed to be [sys.src], spread on 100+ directories
from [acc] to [vvief].

Shall we have a similar structure?

As I first thing, I needed include-files.
SYS$LIB_C.TLB and SYS$STARLET_C.TLB provide something, and I have extracted
from both.
But, only the more general stuff extracted from starlet seems not to have
copyright notices; is it legal to distribute these?
Lib seems to contain a lot of kernel structures.
We must rewrite the stuff in [lib.src] (so far I have got dyndef.h and
lnmstrdef.h). It is only the SDLs which are really there, though.
When is another matter; shall we have pcbdef.h with struct _pcb ready before
or make it while we change struct task_struct into struct _pcb?

And, naming:
Should we use the same names for variables, defines, structures and contents
etc, so it will be much easier talking about the same thing, and developing
too? (Like a struct _hm2 with hm2$l_homelbn as the include-file and Internals
book states instead of struct vms_homeblock with hblb in vms_fs.h)

CASING:
HM2$L_HOMELBN or hm2$l_homelbn?
Small letters on structs and contents, and big on defines?
