OS/2 2.0 Technical Library

In 1992, IBM published the OS/2 2.0 Technical Library along with the operating system itself. This documentation set included design and reference information for application designers and writers, technical writers (creating on-line help), as well as device driver developers. REXX documentation was targeted at both developers and advanced users.

The publications were generally dated March 1992, but a few titles were from December 1991 (SOM Guide and Reference, REXX User’s Guide).

Most but not all of the documentation was delivered as large ring-bound 8.5×11″ manuals  with plastic spines, black and white print with color covers. The print quality was excellent.

The part number for the entire OS/2 2.0 Technical Library was 10G3356. The following documents were included (note that only the first four were assigned an ISBN):

The following documents were not listed as being part of the Technical Library, but were often bundled:
