Abstract : Effective use or teaching of a programming language requires more than facility with the language itself. It is also necessary to deal with the computer as personified by the operating system. The LOGIN procedure is only the first handshake with the system. After a successful LOGIN, the system will just stare back stupidly from the CRT until one enters a command the system knows how to handle. The information regarding the options available at this point fills about six shelf-inches of reference books, and is completely understood by about the same proportion of users as the Ada Language Reference Manual. As with any language however, it is possible rather quickly to learn to enable one to get around without embarrassment. Hopefully, the following information will assist users in dealing with the Digital VAX/VMS operating system. (Author)
