David's material is, for the most part, not beginner stuff, so I don't really recommend these if you're just getting started on the mainframe.  On the other hand, if you read them and want to see more from Dave, check out LinkedIn, where he has a group callled

  1. Here's a link to one of a couple interesting documents which recently came my way:
    "EXCP Programming & I/O Techniques – Hints and Tips"
    By Jean Thisquen – Amdahl Peripheral Product Division – October 21, 1985
    Rare document by author of the highly cited "Seek Time Measurements" (Technical report, Amdahl Peripheral Products Division, 1988). Contains many code samples and explanations of EXCP programming, the highest performance, lowest level programming interface available to the application programmer.
