thanks.

I ran COBOL under RT-11 on an LSI-11/02 back in 1981.  It was
fun and rather interesting with 28KW memory and 4 RX class floppies.

Did it require EIS/FIS ROMS?

Can't say if it "required" it but the system (Terak 8510) did have
them both.

Does anyone have any of these documents, I have exhausted online
searching without finding anything.

AA-1745B-TC             COBOL-11 Installation Guide    
AA-1745C-TC             COBOL-11 Installation Guide    
AA-1749D-TC             COBOL-11 Language Reference Manual      
AA-1757C-TC             COBOL-11 User's Guide

I am keen to find any early versions of COBOL and documentation for
the DEC PDP-11 for any of the OSes.
