...on the occasion of converting from RSTS to UNIX.
(to the tune of Camelot)
by Brad Needham
I welcome you to UNIX Version seven
The operating system we just bought.
It's running on our PDP-11
To have small files is certainly no disgrace
The users of them have not been forgot
For allocators do not waste your disk space
Its pure simplicity beguiles.
E.g. in CODE-A-LOT (CODE-A-LOT!)
Directories are files.
The output of a simple 'list directory'
Is input for the program down the line
You easily have got
Exactly what you sought
Through one brief line of input
Using tools of CODE-A-LOT.
No program-keys to cut and paste
For in CODE-A-LOT (CODE-A-LOT!)
You build commands to suit your taste.
Your objects never lag behind your source code
Upon request, new versions must appear.
In short, there's simple not
A more convenient spot
Than here in CODE-A-LOT!
