This is a compilation of documentation mentioned in the Norsk Data Documentation Catalogue. Links to online resources and references to where copies of the documentation recide should also be included. Known documentation locations is in the library list.

Manual numbering system

The numbering system consists of three number of the form ND-xx.yyy.zz where xx is the main subject, yyy is a sequential number and zz is the version number. A new version is a full manual replacing the old one. There is also revisions where one or more pages are replaced. Revisions is marked with a letters, starting with A.

The numbering system was changed in September 1988 by adding an 8 in front of the first digit and dropping the first dot. Numbers of the form ND-xx.yyy.zz turned into ND-8xxyyy.zz. The new numbering system was used on all new manuals and on older ones when they were updated or reprinted.

After the number there is an optional two letter designation of the language version and an optional p for preliminary versions.
