Internal: Internal documentation

The Question is:

I'm doing a very important job about the operating system VMS and i
can't find books about de IPL process and the memory management.
?Would you please send me some information about it? thank you so

The Answer is:

   The OpenVMS Internals and Data Structures Manual (IDSM) is available
   from Digital Press -- this manual contains the details of the internal
   design of OpenVMS -- IPL, spinlocks, memory management, etc.  Editions
   for OpenVMS VAX and OpenVMS Alpha are available.

        US & Canada URL http://www.bh.com/bh/dp
        UK & Europe URL http://www.butterworth.heinemann.co.uk

   General programming information on IPL and memory management is covered
   in the processor manual (for the physical memory layout) for the system
   in use, in the architecture reference manual (versions are available for
   VAX and Alpha), and in the device driver manual set -- device driver
   manual sets are available for OpenVMS VAX and OpenVMS Alpha.
