Are you sure you don't mean to say the PDP-10 had 36-bit _words_?  I
think the reference to a 36-bit "byte" is an implementation detail of
the C++ compiler on the PDP-10, not a definition of the hardware itself.
 Of course since the PDP-10 could not address any chunk within that
36-bit word, the distinction is probably a bit pedantic.
