The Master Files collection contains all of the files present in the final HP 1000 software database (over 75,000 files). The files are grouped by content format as follows:
The type numbers correspond to RTE FMP file types, and all files are in paper tape image format. Binary files are in big-endian (HP) byte order. The fixed-record-length formats consist of streams of binary data. For type 1 and 6 files, the record length is 128 16-bit words. For type 2 files, the record lengths in 16-bit words are indicated in the individual file names. For type 4 files, the variable-length records are delineated by carriage return/line feed sequences. For type 5 and 7 files, the variable-length records contain embedded length words; the format is described in the RTE-6/VM Programmer's Reference Manual (HP part number 92084-90005).
A master list of all of the files in the database is available. A portion of the database is corrupt, and some files were unrecoverable.
