WTD: Papertapes for PDP 11/05
- I realize that this might be a longshot, but does anyone here in this group
have papertapes for the PDP 11/05 (11/10)? My system has only 8K, and I am
not looking for anything fancy, just the original stuff that came with the
computer - diagnostic programs, editor, assembler and the like.

MARCH has physical tapes for 11/20. I assume most would work though I'm
not that familiar with incompatabilites in the 11 world.
I didn't see the paper tape instructions in the bitsavers pdf files but
they may be there or other 11 archives may have them.
