IBM PERSONAL COMPUTER SOFTWARE OVERVIEW
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Since the introduction of IBM Personal  Computers, IBM PC DOS has
proven to be  an operating system supporting a wide  range of end
user  environments, from  personal productivity  to education  to
specialized applications such as store controllers and laboratory
automation systems.
Key to  the acceptance of PC  DOS has been the  open architecture
and the compatibility that IBM had been able to maintain.
However,  in addition  to  the open  architecture,  IBM has  also
recognized the  requirement for capabilities  that go  beyond the
function  of PC  DOS and  the  needs of  personal computing.   Of
increasing  importance  are  the  requirements  of  business  and
intelligent workstation computing in  the business and industrial
environment.
In this  environment, communications  with other  users and  with
other  systems plays  a key  role.  There  is a  need to  provide
architectural  compatibility  and  a common  user  access  across
families of  IBM systems and  to distribute processing  among IBM
systems.   There is  also  a need  to  run concurrently  multiple
applications  which  take  advantage of  the  larger  memory  and
enhanced functions of the new IBM systems.
To meet these needs, IBM is  announcing IBM Operating System/2, a
new generation of IBM operating system designed to take advantage
of IBM 80286  and 80386 systems while still allowing  the user to
run many existing PC DOS applications.  IBM Operating System/2 is
IBM's  primary  operating  system for  the  newly  announced  IBM
Personal System/2  Model 50, IBM  Personal System/2 Model  60 and
IBM Personal System/2 Model 80, and for the IBM Personal Computer
AT  and  the  IBM Personal  Computer  XT286.   Additionally,  IBM
Operating System/2 takes a step toward consistency with other IBM
systems  as  a   participant  in  the  IBM   Systems  Application
Architecture.
PC DOS 3.3 continues to maintain an important position in the IBM
Personal  Computer product  line.   It  is the  latest  operating
system for  the IBM  PC Convertible,  IBM Personal  Computer, IBM
Personal Computer XT, and the IBM  Personal System/2 Model 30. It
runs  as  a  single  tasking operating  system  on  IBM  Personal
Computer  XT286,  IBM  Personal Computer  AT,  and  IBM  Personal
System/2 Models 50, 60, and 80.
OPERATING SYSTEMS
NEW GENERATION OF IBM OPERATING SYSTEM - IBM OPERATING SYSTEM/2
Today  IBM  announces  the  IBM IBM  Operating  System/2,  a  new
generation of  IBM operating  system providing  new function  for
both the end  user and the application  developer.  IBM Operating
System/2 consists of two offerings:
o   The IBM IBM  Operating System/2 Standard Edition,  which is a
    multitasking operating system that breaks  the 640  Kb memory
    barrier,  providing  greater  flexibility   to  run  multiple
    applications concurrently, and has a Presentation Manager for
    graphics and windowing functions.
o   The IBM IBM  Operating System/2 Extended Edition,  which is a
    comprehensive  operating system  containing a  Communications
    Manager  that  supports  a   broad  range  of  communications
    capabilities, and  a Database Manager  that supports  the IBM
    relational  data base  model, in  addition  to the  operating
    function and  Presentation Manager  provided by  the Standard
    Edition.
HIGHLIGHTS OF IBM OPERATING SYSTEM/2
o   16  Mb Addressable Memory Support
o   Concurrent Processing of Multiple Applications
o   High Level Programming Interface
o   Presentation Manager
o   Enhanced Ease of Use Facilities
o   PC DOS Compatibility
o   Communications Manager
o   Database Manager
o   Systems Application Architecture
o   Warranty and Service
o   National Language Support
16 MB ADDRESSABLE RANDOM ACCESS MEMORY SUPPORT
IBM Operating System/2 supports up to 16 Mb of addressable random
access  memory.  This  enables  application  developers  to  take
advantage of memory beyond 640 Kb for applications and data.  End
users  can have  the benefit  of larger  and functionally  richer
applications  that can  process larger  amounts of  data such  as
large spreadsheets and documents.
IBM Operating System/2 implements  virtual memory through segment
swapping. An  IBM Operating System/2  application program  can be
larger than  available real memory.  Actual size is  dependent on
program characteristics and the physical  capacity of the system.
IBM Operating System/2 manages physical memory by swapping memory
segments to a disk file as required.
CONCURRENT PROCESSING OF MULTIPLE APPLICATIONS
New  applications  written  to take  advantage  of  the  function
provided  in IBM  Operating  System/2 may  be  run and  displayed
concurrently for  the convenience  and increased  productivity of
the end user. Switching between  applications is fast and simple.
Productivity increases because time previously spent starting and
stopping,  entering   and  exiting   applications  in   a  single
application  environment  can  now  be  spent  more  productively
actually  processing data.  Applications can  be written  without
knowledge of what other applications will coexist.
HIGH LEVEL PROGRAMMING INTERFACE
IBM is addressing application development productivity and future
compatibility  by providing  application developers  with a  high
level  CALL interface  to  IBM  Operating System/2.  Applications
written  to this  interface will  be  compatible with  successive
versions  of IBM  Operating  System/2  and also  with  successive
Personal System/2  systems. Applications can also  take advantage
of  a  high  level  of  device  independence.   This  assists  in
upgrading to new IBM Personal System/2 systems or to new versions
of IBM Operating System/2.
Application developers  may choose  to use  a subset  of the  IBM
Operating System/2 CALL  interface which allows the  same program
to run under PC DOS 3.3 and under IBM Operating System/2.
PRESENTATION MANAGER
The  Presentation   Manager  provides   windowing  and   graphics
functions along with  an application enabling interface  which is
designed to  make it easy to  write applications that  conform to
the common user access of the Systems Application Architecture.
Windowing allows  multiple applications to  be viewed by  the end
user at  the same  time.  Each  application can  support multiple
windows.  The user can control window  size and position, and can
create or  delete windows.  A  clipboard function is  provided to
enable the  user or application to  extract data from  one window
and move it to another window or from one application to another.
Graphics  support enables  the development  of a  broad range  of
applications which  take advantage  of the  supported all  points

addressable  (APA)  devices. There  is  a  wide range  of  vector
graphics,  raster   operations,  and   extensive  font   support,
including multiple font styles and sizes.  Graphics orders can be
stored which enables  the application to manage  the picture data
and facilitates fast redrawing of pictures.
ENHANCED EASE OF USE FACILITIES
Enhanced ease of use facilities in IBM Operating System/2 make it
easier for  the novice to learn  and simpler for both  the novice
and  the experienced  user to  operate.   IBM Operating  System/2
provides comprehensive  Help information and  descriptive written
system messages.  Much of this  Help information is contextual in
nature, giving  the end user  the information needed  to complete
the task at hand.  For beginners there is a tutorial to assist in
getting started by learning how to perform basic operating system
tasks.
IBM Operating System/2  also provides an interface  to the system
commands that  supports the IBM Systems  Application Architecture
conventions  for common  user access.  Through  this common  user
access,  applications can  be started  and stopped  or added  and
deleted from  the system as required.   The size and  position of
the application  windows can  also be  controlled.  The  user can
control  local  print out  on  a  printer  or a  plotter.   Also,
information and data contained in the IBM Operating System/2 file
system can be accessed.
The  Extended   Edition  can   be  tailored   by  installing   an
individually  selected  mixture  of  enhanced  operating  system,
Communications Manager, and Database Manager.
COMPATIBILITY WITH PC DOS VERSION 3.3
IBM Operating System/2 provides a  PC DOS environment that allows
many existing PC DOS applications  to run unchanged. This assists
in the transition  from PC DOS to IBM Operating  System/2. A list
of PC  DOS applications that  are being tested  for compatibility
with IBM Operating System/2 Standard  Edition 1.0 is contained in
the IBM Software Compatibility announcement.
Applications  which  may not  run  in  the PC  DOS  compatibility
environment   include    time   dependent   programs    such   as
communications  and  real time  applications,  hardware  specific
routines   such  as   device  drivers,   and  network   dependent
applications.
IBM Operating System/2  uses many commands from the  basic set of
PC DOS commands. This also assists  in the transition from PC DOS
to  IBM  Operating  System/2.   The user  familiar  with  PC  DOS
commands need only learn the IBM Operating System/2 commands that
support IBM Operating System/2's extended capabilities.
With the  new Programmer  Toolkit it will  be possible  to create
applications that run  on both PC DOS and  IBM Operating System/2
using  a subset  of  the the  full  capability  of IBM  Operating
System/2.
Files  created  by the  user  under  either  PC  DOS 3.3  or  IBM
Operating System/2 are interchangeable.  This also assists in the
transition from PC DOS to IBM Operating System/2.
COMMUNICATIONS MANAGER
The Communications  Manager provides a  wide range  of concurrent
connectivities,  multiple  protocols   supported  simultaneously,
concurrent emulation  of multiple  terminal types,  file transfer
under  terminal  emulation,  and and  Communications  and  System
Management (C & SM) support.
Included in the Communications Manager are the following:
o   Wide range of connectivities which can be used concurrently
    -   SDLC
    -   DFT
    -   IBM Token-Ring Network
    -   IBM PC Network
    -   Asynchronous

    -   IBM NETBIOS
    -   IEEE 802.2
(R) Registered trademark of Digital Equipment Corporation
DATABASE MANAGER
The Database Manager supports the IBM relational data base model,
which provides  a data structure  in simple, tabular  form.  Data
definition,  retrieval,   update,  and  control   operations  are
supported by the structured query language  (SQL).  SQL is a high
level  data language  available to  end  users interactively  and
through  application programs  written in  IBM C/2.  This SQL  is
consistent with the IBM family  of relational data base products,
DB2, SQL/DS, QMF,  and the IBM Systems  Application Architecture,
thus enabling  the importing and  exporting of data  from various
IBM sources.
Application creation  tools, such  as customizing  display forms,
menus, and procedures  enable the end user to  develop a complete
data  base   application  without   the  need   for  programming.
Facilities are  available to  the end user  for data  entry, data
edit, query,  and report writing.   Interchange with  specific PC
file formats provides  the capability of importing  and exporting
data  to the  Database  Manager.  The Database  Manager  provides
record  level  locking   and  data  recovery  in   the  event  of
application, system or media failure.
SYSTEMS APPLICATION ARCHITECTURE
IBM Operating System/2  is an initial participant  in IBM Systems
Application  Architecture,  a  collection  of  selected  software
interfaces,  conventions,  and  protocols whose  initial  set  is
planned  to  be  published  in   1987.  IBM  Systems  Application
Architecture is to be the framework for development of consistent
applications  across  the  future  offerings  of  the  major  IBM
computing  environments  -  System/370, System/3x,  and  the  IBM
personal computers.

IBM DISK OPERATING SYSTEM VERSION 3.3 (PC DOS 3.3)
DESCRIPTION
PC DOS 3.3 is the latest  single tasking operating system for the
IBM  Personal Computer  systems  and  the IBM  Personal  System/2
systems. It  is compatible with PC  DOS 3.2 and supports  a broad
range of communications products and  applications, many of which
are referenced in the IBM Software  Compatibility and the DOS 3.3
announcements.
HIGHLIGHTS
o   Three  new commands,  FASTOPEN, CALL,  and  APPEND have  been
    added.
o   The BACKUP/RESTORE, DATE/TIME, ATTRIB,  and SYS Commands have
    been  enhanced to  provide  improvements  in performance  and
    usability.
o   Other enhancements have  been made to increase  the number of
    open files, to speed up disk drive I/O, and to provide a fast
    and secure  method of  writing to a  disk file  in multi-user
    environments, such as networks.
o   The number of asychronous ports  supported has been increased
    to four, and  1.4 Mb diskette drives and  fixed disks greater
    than 32 megabytes are now supported in partitioned mode.
o   The new  DOS 3.30 Technical  Reference supports the  DOS 3.30
    product  and is  available separately.  For PC  DOS 3.3,  the
    following programs have been transferred  from DOS to the DOS
    Technical Reference:
    -   LINKER
    -   EXE2BIN
    -   VDISK.ASM
    -   DEBUG
DESCRIPTION
o   FASTOPEN - allows  files that have been  accessed recently to
    be reopened rapidly, and allows  fast access to deeply nested
    files that  are opened  and closed  very frequently,  such as
    files shared across multiple-PC Networks.
o   CALL -   allows nested  batch files.  A  batch file  can call
    another batch  file which can  return control to  the calling
    batch   file.    This  enhances   support   for   menu-driven
    applications such as automated test programs.
o   DOS  batch file  facility -  allows  access to  environmental
    values. This  increases the  flexibility of  a batch  file by
    allowing appropriate actions to occur based on the content of
    the environmental area.
o   APPEND Command - allows the use of application and data files
    not contained  in the directory  currently active.  It allows
    the user to be in one  subdirectory and find files in another
    subdirectory  to  eliminate  duplication  of  files  or  file
    profiles in each directory.
o   BACKUP and RESTORE Commands - BACKUP produces a log file that
    records each  file processed and  identifies the  diskette on
    which  the   file  resides.   RESTORE  prevents   restore  of
    unbootable system files.
o   DATE and TIME  Commands - for those systems that  have a CMOS
    clock,  enhanced commands  provide  the  ability to  set  and
    update the system  date and time provided by  the CMOS clock.
    Previously,  the  CMOS clock  date  and  time could  only  be
    changed through  the SETUP routine  on the  system diagnostic
    diskette.
o   ATTRIB Command  - provides  the ability  to modify  most file
    attributes  for  a single  file,   for  selected files  in  a
    directory or  for all  files at or  below a  directory level.
    This allows  the user  greater control  over file  access and
    use.
o   SYS Command - prevents the creation of an unbootable disk.
o   SET HANDLE COUNT feature - a  new interrupt 21H function that
    supports more  than 20 open  files per process.  This support
    can be especially useful to  data base applications to reduce
    the need to swap handles (do  opens and closes) to access the
    large number of files they need.
o   Hardfile disk operation - utilizes  the enhanced BIOS support
    for hardfile drives by allowing all  data to be accessed by a
    single operation independent of the number of tracks the data
    spans.   When  data  such  as  clusters  spans  tracks  on  a
    hardfile, PC DOS  3.30 will issue a single  operation for all
    tracks. This speeds up I/O for  large data file processing on
    hardfiles.
o   COMMIT  FILE feature  - a  new interrupt  21H function  which

    causes all  buffered data  for a  file to  be written  to the
    device. This allows a fast and  secure method of writing to a
    disk file.
o   MODE Command - provides support for up to four communications
    ports to exploit new hardware capability - allows the user to
    set the asynchronous adapter to 19.2kb transmission rates.
o   Logical partitioning  of fixed disks - allows access of media
    greater  than 32  Mb by  allowing  the user  to divide  large
    hardfiles  into logical  drives up  to 32  Mb depending  upon
    physical  space available.  This provides  support for  large
    hardfiles.  Each disk  volume created within the  Extended PC
    DOS partition can be any size from one cylinder up through 32
    Mb.
o   Enhanced  handling of  error messages  -  the prompt  "Abort,
    Retry,  or Ignore"  has  been enhanced  to  display only  the
    appropriate subset of a new  prompt "Abort, Retry, Ignore, or
    Fail",  and a  Fail  return code  has  been  added to  assist
    applications in handling of important errors.
TOPVIEW 1.12
TopView 1.12  provides support  on PC  DOS 3.3  for IBM  Personal
System/2  Model  30,  IBM  Personal System/2  Model  50  and  IBM
Personal System/2 Model 60 which includes 3.5 inch diskette media
and IBM mouse driver.

flexibility  in the  use of  these supported  devices with  these
applications.
The  IBM  IBM  Operating System/2  Graphics  Development  Toolkit
provides the  ability to  migrate existing  graphics applications
that are written  to the virtual device interface  (VDI) which is
provided with the IBM Graphics Development Toolkit 1.1 and 1.2 to
IBM Operating System/2.
These  applications cannot  be windowed  with  the IBM  Operating
System/2 Presentation Manager.
Major enhancements of IBM Operating System/2 Graphics Development
Toolkit over IBM Graphics Development Toolkit 1.1/1.2 include the
following:
o   Software font support
o   Extended graphics functions
    -   new vector drawing functions, such as compose polygon
    -   additional  pixel  and  bit map  functions  which  permit
        effective use of virtual screen buffers by an application
    -   improved text  handling for easier  user control  of text
        attributes such as color, transparency, and font.
