We wrote our own versions of more. Here is one from the roughly-PWB1 systems
at MIT:

  http://ana-3.lcs.mit.edu/~jnc/tech/unix/s2/p.c

but on looking at it, I'm not 100% sure it's the one I used there (which is
documented in the MIT UPM).

Here's one I wrote for myself for use on V6:

before I retrieved all the MIT sources (above), if you want somthing to
actually use on V6/V7.
