Big thanks to Martin

I wanted to thank you for posting that OS/2 Certification Book on the Wiki. That had to take a great deal of time. Well done sir.

The same from me. Extremely good work and much interesting stuff to read.

Martin, could you please rename or re-upload the file in order to get spaces changed to underscores? Our Mozilla ports don't convert %20 into a space automatically. To open the downloaded file, one has to rename it first before opening it via doubleclick.

Yes, I too want to say a big THANK YOU!

Having done some book-scanning myself, I can understand that was a huge task to complete.

This will nicely complement the Warp 3 certification handbook that I have.

Thanks again!

Thanks.

I paid for the scanning to a local copyshop (at the end my wife found out because the copyshop called my home to tell that it is going to be a delay) it was more expensive than expected, but what the hell, it is like 1100 pages and I didn't want to scan it myself. After that I just did the OCR, table of contents and compressing the file.

Andreas, check out this link: http://www.os2world.com/images/ArticlesImages/files/
both are the same file, see if you can get them.

I'm also looking for some other IBM non-public (and non-confidential/non-internal) books / manuals that can be released to the public.  Maybe something like training material. I can give it the try to request permission for that too.

For the moment I need some help to republish the latest things that IBM authorized for the EDM/2.

Regards.

Sure, I see 2 files, the second with underscores.

What about IBM OS/2 Red Books ? I have gone to them in the past...

I'm sure that there will be no problem requesting permission for the RedBook, but they already public on the IBM's Redbook site.

What I want to is to start first with the "non-public" OS/2 contents to make them available on the Internet first.

There was some workshops for OS/2 development (and also driver development) that IBM used to provide. I'm trying to find someone that has some documentation about it.
