This is the only book available that specifically covers programming
in the OpenVMS Digital Command Language (DCL).
Newly revised and updated, Writing Real Programs in DCL, 2nd Edition
will help OpenVMS programmers make an intelligent choice between DCL
and more conventional programming languages. In addition, the book
offers a programming language to computer users who are not conversant
with conventional languages. Among the new material is information on
DCL commands, security, DCL procedures, aliases, searchlists, UIC-based
protection, objects, pipes, detached processes, network processes, HTML,
CGI scripting and environments, and reading and writing logical names.
New chapters and new sections on using DCL for the web, DCL DECnet
task-to-task communications, and date-related and Y2K issues in DCL
code -- all relevant to today's programming needs.
