DEC RSTS Easter Egg - Make Function

In Digital Equipment Corporation's RSTS operating system, there was a utility called "make." This would create a text file of a specified name, and then launch the TECO text editor on that file.

A user would type "make myfile" and the file "myfile" would be created, and then the user would find him or herself editing "myfile" in TECO (which is still one of the best text editors the planet has ever seen, but I digress).

The easter egg is this: If a user typed the command "make love", the make command would echo to the screen "not war?" before launching the text editor on the newly created file "love".
