Yeah, it's crazy what is on there - IBM really never throws stuff away - well, some stuff, anyhow!

Another resource I really like is the online library at -

Lots of stuff - architecture like MOD-CA, DRDA, and lots of stuff we don't

There's an ancient IBM manual, long out of print, called:

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:
Softcopy Library
Information Center
Knowledge Center

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
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...
