"Great. I still use BookManager a lot for the z/OS, z/VM abd VSE
documentation because we are an ISV and I keep multiple current old versions
of the above operating systems running where most of the docs provided were
still in BookManager format.

I agree that the PDF format and search for the number of CA IDMS manuals is
easy and worth using. Now if only the CA IDMS PDF files were always named
with the real manual titles things would be even better since one often
knows the manual ones wants by Title but can't remember the cryptic number
of it.
