Steve Kirsch asks in what languages NCP and TCP were written.

The Stanford first TCP implementation was done in BCPL by Richard Karp.
Another version was written for PDP-11/23 by Jim Mathis but not clear in
what language. Tenex was probably done in C at BBN. Was 360 done in PL/1??
Dave Clark did one for IBM PC (assembly language/??)

Other recollections much appreciated.
