If you mean me, then I wrote a program some years ago which did console I/O on 
various platforms. I think I mentioned the PVAX class of machines in response to 
a query about the uVAX 2000. As far as I know, for the MicroVAX II you can use 
the standard console IPRs. For the VAXstation II I guess you'll need to talk to 
the VCB directly. I have a tech doc for the VCB02 lying around somewhere and I 
recall that it gives you enough information (just about) to do this. Let me know 
if you need this info.
