Yggdrasl (or however you spell it). Most binary files have
the date of Feb 26, 1996. Many text files have the date of
July 11, 1995. I have sources, many with the dates of
Aug 31, 1992:

-rw-r--r-- 1 root bin 4502 Aug 31 1992 CHANGES
-rw-r--r-- 1 root bin 1658 Aug 31 1992 README
-rw-r--r-- 1 root bin 2029 Aug 31 1992 brac.c
-rw-r--r-- 1 root bin 11258 Aug 31 1992 ch.c
-rw-r--r-- 1 root bin 3534 Aug 31 1992 charset.c
[SNIPPED...]

In those days very few persons even heard of GPL.

These are the only gpl or GPL strings found in any binaries.

sub showGPL {
last if (/^{END OF GPL COPYRIGHT}$/) ;
last if (/^{END OF GPL CONDITIONS}$/) ;
&showGPL unless $QUIET ;
{END OF GPL COPYRIGHT}
{END OF GPL CONDITIONS}
To appear in SIGPLAN Conference on Programming Language Design
label .about.gpl3 -text "Pulic License (GPL)"


Note that "Public" is even spelled incorrectly!


Cheers,

Why is the government concerned about the lunatic fringe? Think about it.
