we have purchased a banking software(symitar) that uses: power on programming language.
has anyone heard of this?
my boss thinks it is based on an old ibm language.
what I need is a programming manual.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Is there any help documentation provided with the package that has examples of this language?

Maybe what they meant is that it works like a service: it runs when the machine powers on.

It is based on the programming language PL1 that ibm used way back when and is one of the first programming languages.
I can only assume that it has been upgraded to gui.

we get no manuals unless we pay them a fortune to take a class in the language, we are programmers, so if we had some type of manual it wouldn't take long to figure out how to program.
poweron is quite a clever marketing name - it ensures that if you don't get the right keywords, you can't find anything.  Guess it is one of those where they keep a tight lid on things and make money by getting you to attend classes.

Go to product brief, fill in the details and see what they allow you to download.  May not be much but may be a good starting point.
