Maybe it will help if subtasks are specified?
DCL itself, with Internal Procedures
CLI Command Language Interface routines No kernel stuff
$ help cli
LBR librarian No kernel stuff (I think)
$ help lbr
CDU Command Definition Utility No kernel stuff (I think)
$ help set command
MSG message No kernel stuff (I think)
$ help rtl lib lib$signal
$ help message
Internal procedures possible now, some can be developed independently
=, assign, call, create/name_table, deassign, define,
delete/symbol, eod, exit, gosub, goto, if/then/else/endif,
inquire, on, read, recall, return, set control, set prompt,
set symbol, set [no]verify, show symbol, show time,
show translation, stop, write
Internal procedures for later (kernel dependent)
allocate, attach, cancel, close, connect, continue,
deallocate, debug, deck, define/key, delete/key, deposit,
disconnect, eoj, examine, open, set default, set key,
set [no]on, set output_rate, set protection, set uic,
show default, show key, show protection, show quota,
show status, spawn, wait
Look up DCL in the Internals book.
Mainly Process Dynamics chapter.
A lot DCL needs (also besides from internal procedures) seems to depend
on the kernel, so that will be done later.
Speaking of participation:
Is FreeVMS doomed from the beginning, due to a culture difference?
The culture being people expecting a finished product without contributing
themselves, and without being able to change?
