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".
