This paper illustrates use of the key facilities of Operating System/2™ (OS/2™). It provides some guidance on how to use the interfaces and functions implemented by the system and then introduces the program development environment. Two examples demonstrate the use of some of the more interesting capabilities. The paper discusses many of the significant differences between the functions of OS/2 and those of the Disk Operating System (DOS).
