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because IBM copyright was on it, I can take a chance and ask the IBM lawyers to authorize the republishing since now it is obsolete documentation.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 had good results with some old books and courseware.

Please check your basements, libraries, attic, if you have some of this, or something else please contact me.


Martin Iturbide:

I just from IBM Permission to republish on the EDM/2 Wiki and the OS2World Wiki these documents:

    Control Program Programming Guide and Reference
    GPI Guide and Reference
    Presentation Manager Programming Guide and Reference
    System Object Model Programming Guide
    System Object Model Programming Reference
    Workplace Shell Programming Reference
    Workplace Shell Programming Guide

Even that is not a great breakthrough because it is already online it is good to have it legally available as a backup. I will put it in several formats (PDF, DOCX, ODT and INF) in the next days.

I'm still looking for the more difficult material to find, any OS/2 IBM Courseware (posted before). If anybody found some of this, please let me know to scan it and request formal permission to republish it.

The courseware I was able to find (two courses / OS/2 Warp Server for e-business and OS/2 2.1 for Software Developers) has already been published on the OS2World Wiki with permission.


Martin Iturbide:

I just posted:
- OS/2 Warp Communication Seminar 1995 - German
- OS/2 Version 2.1 - Architektur und Funktionens (German)

Thanks to IBM and the guy that did all the scanning :)

Please, I'm still looking for more "courseware material" listed on the first post. If you find any, please let me know.


Martin Iturbide:

Please help me out to find more material (the ones that I requested on the first post) or if you have something else you may contact me in private at
