Try typing HELP at system prompt. Most of the time it is enough. FMS is like DOS. I suggest that you start with the folloging HELP topics: SET DEF (chagde default directory) DIR (good old directory list) COPY RENAME DELETE PURGE (VMS handles many versions of same file, it is shown as a number after the symbol ";" in the file name. If you are working in OPEN VMS (Alpha Computer), there should be a graphic file manager interfase. ON LINE documentation in this machine is very good. Always try HELP at any prompt.
