How could I forget those! Yes, my old (as in 1980-1985) boss at the 
University hospital even had the manual in the office. It wasn't a 
statistical system though, more a suite of single-purpose computer 
programs with a rigid control-card specification format.

BTW, they were apparently put in the public domain by UCLA, but I wonder 
where they went?
