Hi Experts

I confess I'm a little intimidated seeing a mainframe interface (the black screens).

What is the name of IBM's  mainframe interface ?

Could you please give me an usual path for edit a set of COBOL programs / compile them/  linkedit then with CICS libraries/ DB2 libraries and then run it ( I'm not wanting an extensive reply - just an outline)

(If you could put it using a Clipper metaphor it could be fine)

Thanks in advance !
 (Sorry if I'm abusing...)

Well,

I already told you a bit in our other thread, but I'm by no means familiar with things like Clipper, sorry.

Mainframe Interface? There are menu-driven, ASCII based things like TSO/ISPF or DB2I, there is also the old ICCF (don't know whether this still exists, though).
For z/VM there is CMS.

As for preparing COBOL/CICS/DB2 programs - you might want to look at the below linked stuff, it's from IBM's CICS Infocenter and deals with "Preparing CICS DB2 programs for execution and production".

Now it's matter of my efforts to better understand.
And then return back here with new questions...

Thank you very much.
