DCL Scripts

My very first programming language ever was DCL on my university's VAX system running VMS.

There was a login script that we edited as part of our introduction to Honors. Once I found out that these programs were just text files, I started messing about with them and generally breaking them since I had no clue what I was doing. With time I learned to make backups and my understanding slowly progressed.

With time my l33t skilz developed and by the time I left I had replaced all of the utilities provided by the honors programs with improved versions of my own. I'd guess maybe 30% of the users on the system were running programs out of my account.

The VMS system at TTU is on an Alpha now, but still around. The students no longer get a login however. So, alas these are just here for the history.
