Don't you really mean the "PJRST" hack?  ;-}


p.s. Hmmm... Maybe not. The PJRST macro (opdef, really) was used
as early as TOPS-10 Monitor 4S72 (circa 1970), but it may not have
been officially mandated for denoting TCE until 5.0 (~1972?). The
"JRST hack" was probably used long before that in ITS/MacLisp, yes?
