There's an ancient IBM manual, long out of print, called:
Application Programming: Application Development by Example
I have SC21-9852-0 on mine.

I had a copy long ago, and remember that is was useful. I went looking
in all the dark recesses of my office, but couldn't find it. Then I
looked online and couldn't find it at all.

My recollection of the history of manuals is fuzzy, but I think it goes
like this:
Paper
BookManager http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/html/as400/online/V3R7PDF.HTM
Softcopy Library http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/html/as400/onlinelib.htm
Information Center
Knowledge Center
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/ssw_ibm_i/welcome

For sure, the S/36 and S/38 manuals were paper-only. Unless someone
digitised them... BookManager had specially-formatted .boo files which
needed the IBM BookReader to view. The oldest BookManager shelf I can
find is for V3R7. The Softcopy Library was a combination of .boo, .pdf,
and .html files. The oldest Softcopy Library I can find is V4R1.

The Development by Example book isn't in any of those places... I wonder
if it was a System/38 paper manual? Oh, well. Unless someone digitises
a copy it'll remain a mystery...
