(snip of a variety of questions about the compilers)


Used MicroVAX systems are fairly cheap, and if they are still too
expensive, emulators are available. You can get a free hobbyist
license to run any version of VMS or OpenVMS that you can find, and
pretty many versions are available. The hobbyist license includes
most of the compilers, and other programs that you might want to run.


The license restrictions are pretty much non-profit hobby usage,
which sounds just like what you are interested in. See:
