Site powered by WASD and VMS   Consolidated list of documentation, scripts and
other resources available with the WASD package.
All demonstrations should work when using the DEMO.COM procedure.
Results with some may vary according to local system setup and environment.
When on an installed server a few may be disabled completely or configured to require authorization in line with local requirements.
