EDM/2 - September Updates - IBM Publications
« on: September 07, 2013, 03:41:35 pm »
Hi Guys

Do you know any other IBM OS/2 related articles (development or architecture) that was published by IBM but it is not public anymore? (with the exception of any IBM Internal confidential documents)

I can give it a try to request IBM for re-publishing permission.

For example. I'm trying to find some OS/2 workshop materiales, the OS/2 certification book. Any suggestion of what do you know it exists is welcome.

Regards

Hi

I was checking the OS/2 Device Driver Kit CDROM- 2004  (aprox 2004/10/07).

I noticed all this documentation that will be interesting for the EDM/2 Wiki:

- ALP Assembler Reference
- Display Device Driver Reference
- GRADD Device Driver Reference
- Input/Output Device Driver Reference
- Multimedia Device Driver Reference
- Physical Device Driver Reference
- Presentation Device Driver Reference
- Pen for OS/2 Device Driver Reference
- Printer Device Driver Reference
- Storage Device Driver Reference
- Virtual Device Driver Reference
- Multimedia Test Suite Documentation
- LAN Device Driver Documentation
- OO Audio Device Driver Documentation
- 'Using Your DDK' Build Instructions

The majority of this articles has the following copyright notice:

You may copy, modify, and distribute these sample programs in any form without payment to IBM, for the purposes of developing, using, marketing or distributing application programs conforming to the OS/2 application programming interface.

I think this is good, but I will need to request the formal approval from IBM to respost this content because it does not clearly say you can repost the text, it says you can use the "source language"

Questions!

1) Does anybody knows any newer documentation than the "OS/2 Device Driver Kit CDROM- 2004  (aprox 2004/10/07)." ?

2) Where was the USB libraries documentation posted by IBM? I also want to include it on the request?

3) Do you have any thoughts about any other interesting IBM publication that is worthy requestion permission to re-publishing.

By the way.

I also got permission to republish the entire book "Rexx Reference Summary Handbook" by Richard K. Goran (He was also the pubisher). His wife gave me permission to republish it since he passed away on 1999.

But I need help to do this. I don't have the book and if anybody can help me scanning it, it will help me a lot to post it on the EDM/2 wiki.

Regards.
Martin.

I have a good news and a bad news.

The good news is that IBM authorized me to re-publish the book "OS/2 Warp 4 Certification Book - SG24-4869-00 - October 1996" on the OS2World Wiki.

The bad news is that is a big book and I don't have an book scanner to help me with this. Any ideas/help is welcome.

Hi.

The good news is that I got permission from IBM to republish on EDM/2 the following articles:

IBM Device Driver Development Kit 2004

    AP2 - Automated Audio Device Driver Test Tool
    Assembly Language Processor (ALP) Assembler Reference
    Display Device Driver Reference for OS2
    Graphics Adapter Device Driver Reference
    Input Output Device Driver Reference
    LAN Device Driver Documentation
    MMPM2 Device Driver Reference
    Object-Oriented OS2 Audio Device Driver Samples
    Pen for OS2 Device Driver Reference
    Physical Device Driver Reference
    Presentation Device Driver Reference for OS2
    Printer Device Driver
    Storage Device Driver Reference
    Using Your DDK
    Virtual Device Driver Reference for OS2
    Basic USB Device Driver Stack for OS/2 Warp Programmer’s Reference. Version 1.1 (02/22/2002)

IBM OS/2 Development Related Contents

    OS/2 Application Binary Interfase for PowerPC (32-BIT) - 1995-12-08
    IBM OS2 16-32-BIT Object Module Format (OMF) and Linear Executablet Module Format (LX) - lx386 - 1996-10-09
    The System Object Model (SOM): A Technology for Language Independent Objects

    TCP/IP V3.5 For WS 4.0 SMP Feature
    OS/2 TCP/IP Software Updates(RSUINST.EXE)
    Winsock 1.1 for OS/2

(EDM/2 Link)

The bad news is that is a lot of work to move that to the wiki. I'm thinking on only linking the big books, and the smaller articles post them on the Wiki.

Plus I had been complaining that is getting hard to find good tools to convert HTML to MediaWiki format. There are a lot of tools, but a lot of them are not working.

Help is welcome !!   ;D

Regards

I got my hands on "N1740 - OS/2 2.1 for Software Developers".
I have the:
- Class Workbook
- Supplemental Material

I'm scanning it and crunching it, after that I will request permission to post it.

But I don't have the diskettes that used to come with it. If anybody founds it please let me know.

I'm also looking for:
N1750    Building OS/2 Device Drivers    
N1688    Presentation Manager 2.x for Software Developers
N1745    Workplace Shell Programming with SOM    
N1744    Presentation Manager: Windowing & Graphics    
N1742    Presentation Manager Device Drivers    
N1743    OS/2 Problem Diagnosis and Resolution
N1746    OS/2 2.x for 1.x Developers

If you find any other OS/2 courseware, please let me know. I have this list and I still miss a lot:

Martin,

You still need a copy of this? I've got several different versions as every time it got updated I bought another copy (or 2).

Cheers,

Please remember that I'm looking for more IBM content. Articles or books about OS/2.

If something was not public on it's time because IBM copyright was on it, I can take a chance and ask the IBM lawyers to authorize the republishing since now it is obsolete documentation.

I'm looking for all this: http://www.os2world.com/wiki/index.php/IBM_OS/2_Courseware

But if you have something else, please contact me.
