Big Gray Wall
<jargon> What faces a VMS
user searching for documentation. A full VMS kit comes on a pallet, the documentation taking up around 15 feet of shelf space before the addition of layered products such as compiler
s, multi-vendor networking, and programming tools.
Recent (since VMS version 5) DEC documentation comes with grey binders; under VMS version 4 the binders were orange and under version 3 they were blue.
Often contracted to "Gray Wall".
