    The Berkeley HTABLE program will not accept CPUs of the form:
    SUN-2/50,they must instead be written SUN2-50. No slashes.

No, Mike, you have probably been confused by htable's off-by-3 error
messages. HTABLE likes SUN-2/50 fine, but it can't cope with CPUs of
the form "3Bn". When EYEZOD came out, I got Hostmaster to change its
machine type to "ATT-3B20", but the problem resurfaced with the .BU.EDU
batch that brought us BUCSA. The five offending hosts are:

HOST : 192.12.185.21 : BUCSC.BU.EDU,BUCSC,DEATHSTAR : 3B5 : UNIX : TCP/TELNET,TCP/SMTP,TCP/FTP :
HOST : 192.12.185.22 : TIE1.BU.EDU,TIE1 : 3B2 : UNIX : UDP :
HOST : 192.12.185.23 : TIE2.BU.EDU,TIE2 : 3B2 : UNIX : UDP :
HOST : 192.12.185.24 : TIE3.BU.EDU,TIE3,BUDD : 3B2 : UNIX : UDP :
HOST : 192.12.185.25 : TIE4.BU.EDU,TIE4 : 3B2 : UNIX : UDP :

More errors came in host table version 530: 24 host names with
"Berkeley.EDU" in their names. Can the 4.3 HTABLE handle lower case?
