John Lions taught me operating systems at The University of New South Wales. Sadly he's dead now, though the overseas students who suffered under his criticism of their standard of English may not regret so strongly.
I have the two books from the class, which I treasure; one is A commentary on the UNIX Operating System, fourth printing, the other is UNIX Operating System Source Code Level Six. There, on Sheet 25 is the code that matches the slide.
They are printed on the big old Computer Centre line printers in fixed width font on A4 paper, landscape orientation, bound in yellow (the commentary) and red (the code). The commentary is printed justified in three columns, the code in two.
