Chapter 3 of this book gets you started using ISPF, IBM’s standard platform
for application development under OS/390 and z/OS. With that start, you’re
ready for MVS TSO, Part 1: Concepts and ISPF,
which will teach you how to use all the ISPF facilities you need for program-development
Likewise, chapter 20 introduces you to TSO commands and CLIST and
REXX procedures. But to become proficient at using these features, you need
MVS TSO, Part 2: Commands, CLIST, and REXX.
(MVS is the base operating system that underlies OS/390 and z/OS.)
