    CP/M came with a fat manual, too. I used to hand the book to people and challenge them to tell me what the first sentence (paragraph?) meant. It was pretty impenetrable. Unlike IBM's manuals, where you had to stop and think about every sentence, but there was heavily-distilled meaning, and not a character was wasted.

    Fortunately, if your computer came with CP/M installed (as opposed to home brew), all you really needed was a cheat sheet of commands.
