This is the BPCS list server.  It is devoted to the discussion of topics
related to System Software Associates' (SSA's) Business Process Control
System (BPCS).  We can generally concede that topics involving AS/Set, NEWI,
and BPCS "bolt-ons" (QMS, et al) are acceptable.  Discussion of other
software products as they relate to interfacing with BPCS is fine.
Discussion of hardware platforms as they relate to BPCS is fine as well, but
do not attempt to promote one platform over another.  Discussion of platform
strengths and weaknesses is allowed.

Questions regarding programming techniques as related to AS/Set or NEWI are
allowed; however, native programming not specifically related to BPCS would
be better served on the midrange list server, MIDRANGE-L.  Connectivity and
AS/400 related questions, unless specific to BPCS or CIMPath, would be better
served by MIDRANGE-L as well.

Flames are ABSOLUTELY prohibited.  We are all adults here, and can express
our discontent without childish remonstrations.  Any person caught issuing a
flame will be immediately terminated from the list, or be forced to maintain
one of the "500" programs using screen arrays instead of subfiles and at
least twelve "dead" subroutines -- you decide which is worse.

Vendor postings are prohibited unless they pertain to a specific question or
are related to a new product or service for BPCS users.  Job postings will be
allowed unless the poster reaches an "annoyance level" or posts jobs
unrelated to BPCS.  Said "annoyance level" will be a threshold of one posting
per month.

The official language of the BPCS mailing list is English.
