Story identification please - man emerges alone, uses computer terminal to discover truth, lots of code?

I vaguely remember this book from about 20 years ago, it may have been a short story, but I think it was a book.

I don't remember much about. I'm fairly certain that a man awakens or emerges and finds there is nobody left. I have an impression of snow but that's not definite. He is searching and pretty sure he finds this computer terminal which boots up like it has been a very long time, starts searches and diagnostics and history. Lots of code-like text in the book from the terminal which is why I put it down initially.

Thanks if you can remember this one!
