|About this Wiki
VSI OpenVMS wiki is the world's biggest encyclopedia entirely dedicated to the OpenVMS operating system.
The purpose of the project is to consolidate and organize information about this operating system and create an easily searcheable reference base to answer any questions about it. Ultimately, this encyclopedia should contain basic information on common features of OpenVMS and operations frequently performed by programmers and system managers using this system as well as links to the current documentation. The wiki model used to create this encyclopedia allows any registered user to write an article or suggest changes to an existing article, thus maximizing the number of contributions and maintaining the integrity and neutrality of the data.
To date, our wiki has 943 articles. View the full list here or use the search box in the top right corner to search this wiki. Or, if you are feeling adventurous, visit a random page.
