You're right about Autocoder being on IBM. I remember it mentioned a lot
at the time. 

Easycoder was a Honeywell product and used on the H-200, H-120, H-125,
H-1250 etc.  In those days we had 'core' memory which really was
magnetic cores with wires passing through the cores. A H-120 I worked on
has a massive 32K of memory and it took 1 hour to do a Cobol


With best regards,
