Dear Rich,

The 5250 data stream SCS commands are documented in two distinct categories of 
IBM publication.

The very technical command by command description is included in the book "5250 
Information Display System to System/36, System/38, and Application System/400 
System Units Product Attachment Information (PAI)". This book is an IBM 
Confidential publication. Normally it can only be purchased by joining the 
AS/400 Partners in Development program. For further information on this program 
visit http:\\www.developer.ibm.com. 

The very good public domain publication is the "IBM 5250 Information Display 
System Functions Reference Manual". The publication number is SA21-9247 and it 
can be ordered from IBM Publications at 800-879-2755.

Additional commands not covered in the "IBM 5250 Information Display System 
Functions Reference Manual" are covered in RFC 1205 (Telnet 5250).

HTH
