A quick introduction
If you asked us to describe ISPF and PDF in twenty-five words or less, we'd
probably say something like this:
'MSPF and PDF are versatile, time-saving products for managing
and developing interactive applications, and they're easy to learn
and easy to use"
And you might say:
"Sounds interesting, but it really doesn't tell me much about them.
I need to know more about the products if I'm going to consider
using them. What are they, exactly? How can they help me save
time? Are there any hardware and software requirements I
should know about?"
We're glad you asked! You'll find answers to all of these questions, and perhaps
a few more, in this booklet. And, if you'd like more information, you can call
your IBM sales representative and make arrangements to see ISPF and PDF in
We think ISPF and PDF have a lot to offer. After you look at this booklet, we
think you'll agree.
