Too bad I cannot run Unix SYS V apps on Linux. I have the Norton
Utilities for Unix (ran on Interactive and AT&T SVR4.2 on intel
processors / standard 386 PCs) It even had an unerase feature for the
SYS V file system. I was probably the only person who bought it. We used
the Norton Integrator to make a character-based menu system for our
apps. Users loved it.
