Techpubs for pre-6.5 Versions of IRIX

Unread postby josehill » Wed Mar 07, 2012 1:48 pm

I was poking around SGI's Techpubs site today, looking for an IRIX 5.3-era man page, and I noticed that versions of IRIX prior to IRIX 6.5 are no longer listed in the Techpubs navigation links. However, SGI still has the pre-6.5 documents available through Techpubs as "archive" material. For your convenience, here are the links to the version-specific sections of the Techpubs archives:

IRIX 5.3 - http://techpubs.sgi.com/library/tpl/cgi ... ?coll=0530
IRIX 6.2 - http://techpubs.sgi.com/library/tpl/cgi ... ?coll=0620
IRIX 6.3 - http://techpubs.sgi.com/library/tpl/cgi ... ?coll=0630
IRIX 6.4 - http://techpubs.sgi.com/library/tpl/cgi ... ?coll=0640

For those who might be interested in creating their own, personal archives, there was a fair amount of discussion on the subject in this thread from a couple of years ago - viewtopic.php?f=10&t=10071

Easy: dig up the IRIX 3.x media :)

Extract man pages, and IRIX 6.5 has a man2html gateway similar to techpubs.
Now this is a deep dark secret, so everybody keep it quiet :)
It turns out that when reset, the WD33C93 defaults to a SCSI ID of 0, and it was simpler to leave it that way... -- Dave Olson, in comp.sys.sgi
