Need some help to put more names next to these components:

From http://mtswiki.westwood-tech.com/mtswiki-index.php/MTS%20at%20UBC:

. . .  here are a few of the MTS components which originated at UBC:
  • The 2260 and 3270 DSRs - Device Support Routines for IBM CRT terminals (Dave Twyver)
  • The Resource Manager - a spooling system on legal steroids (Ralph Sayle and just about everyone at UBC in the late 70s and early 80s)
  • Plus - systems programming language (Alan Ballard and Paul Whaley)
  • CLParser - command-language parser (Alan Ballard)
  • Forum - teleconferencing system (Alan Ballard)
  • CDUpdate - context directed patch equivalent (Alan Ballard)
  • Interactive FORTRAN - a FORTRAN interpreter (Ron Hall and others)
  • STASS360? - a fast assembler for use by students
  • Virtual machine? - the MTS virtual 360/370, used primarily for system test and debugging (Peter Madderom?)
  • $PEEK (Paul Whaley)
