Using the online documentation library

If you have an OpenVMS workstation and the ASAP SDK, you have immediate access to software product documentation.The next time you have a question about the DEC C Runtime Library, you can find it online.

Open the package marked "OpenVMS Alpha Online Documentation Library". In it you will find CD-ROM discs and printed instructions. Find the paper called the "Master Index". It lists the products, the version of each, and which disc to mount. Read the "Getting Started" paper to mount the disc and install BNU on your OpenVMS system.The following is a sample installation.
