New VMS Position open
Hey Sue,
I was astonished to find a new VMS Requirement in my inbox this 
morning.  The other position that I was working on in California has 
been temporarily put on hold.  This is a brand new one from a different 
company.  Hopefully I can place a few of your contacts in there.  I am 
going to get in touch with the same people that approached me for the 
last one.  This new one also has a more attracting rate compared to 
the other, so I am assuming that I won't run into the same 
Also feel free to delete the technical definitions part of this description
It mentions other companies that are not as grand as Hewlett 
Packard...J We wouldn't want to advertise for them now would we?.... 
Merci Beaucoup!

Technical Definitions:
Ř       VAX BASIC was an extended dialect of BASIC which was 
developed by Digital Equipment Corporation (a.k.a. DEC) for use on its 
VMS operating system for the VAX series of 32-bit minicomputers in the 
Ř       VAX BASIC used the standard VMS calling standards so object 
code produced by this language system could be linked with object 
code produced by any of the other VMS languages. Many of the control 
structures used in other high-level languages existed in VAX BASIC, 
including WHILE and UNTIL, and the language also supported the use 
of modifiers on a line to control execution such as
Ř       PRINT I UNLESS I < 10
Ř       VAX BASIC is upwards-compatible from DEC's earlier BASIC Plus 2.
It later morphed into DEC BASIC for use on their 64-bit Alpha 
minicomputers in the 1990s.
Ř       Due to the merger mania of 1997-2002, it was rebranded as 
Compaq BASIC for OpenVMS VAX then rebranded again as HP BASIC for 
OpenVMS VAX. See HP BASIC for OpenVMS for more details.
Ř       HP BASIC for OpenVMS is a commercial strength BASIC with many 
FORTRAN extensions including matrix operators. One of its biggest 
features is built-in support for OpenVMS's Record Management Services 
(RMS) allowing direct manipulation of sequential, relative, and indexed 
(up to 255 keys) files. Previously you would only get native RMS 
support in their COBOL compiler. Like most other modern BASICs, line 
numbers are optional unless the "ERL" function is present. Another 
practical feature is the ability to write error handlers near protected 
statements over and above the less elegant "ON ERROR" statement. 
(see the WHEN ERROR blocks in the example program below)
Ř       Versions and product names
Ř       HP BASIC has gone through many name changes, from being 
ported to several new platforms and due to the merger-mania of 1997-
Ř       Using their BASIC-PLUS-2 product for the 16-bit PDP-11 
minicomputer as a starting point, "VAX BASIC" was developed by Digital 
Equipment Corporation (DEC) for their 32-bit VAX platform running the 
VMS operating system.
Ř       When DEC invented their 64-bit Alpha microprocessor, VMS was 
ported to it and renamed OpenVMS. VAX BASIC was ported to Alpha 
and named DEC BASIC. The BASIC interpreter was permanently 
dropped in the 64-bit product line, which means that DEC BASIC 
programs could only be run as OpenVMS executables produced by a 
compile followed by a link. 
Ř       When DEC was purchased by Compaq in 1997/98, the products 
were renamed "Compaq BASIC for OpenVMS VAX" and "Compaq BASIC 
for OpenVMS Alpha". 
Ř       When Compaq merged with Hewlett-Packard (HP) in 2001/02, the 
products were renamed "HP BASIC for OpenVMS VAX" and "HP BASIC 
for OpenVMS Alpha". Since the Compaq division of HP has decided to 
build new server platforms based upon Intel's 64-bit Itanium chip, we 
can only assume that we'll eventually see an "HP BASIC for OpenVMS 
Ř       VAX is a 32-bit computing architecture that supports an 
orthogonal instruction set (machine language) and virtual addressing 
(i.e. demand paged virtual memory). It was developed in the mid-1970s 
by Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC). DEC was later purchased by 
Compaq, which in turn was purchased by Hewlett-Packard. The VAX 
has been perceived as the quintessential CISC processing architecture, 
with its very large number of addressing modes and machine 
instructions, including instructions for such complex operations as 
queue insertion/deletion and polynomial evaluation.
Ř       OpenVMS (Virtual Memory System) operating system (OS) is a 
multi-user, multiprocessing OS that was designed by Digital Equipment 
Corporation of Maynard, Massachusetts (subsequently owned by 
Compaq and now owned by Hewlett-Packard) for use in time sharing, 
batch processing, and transaction processing. In the beginning 
commonly referred to as just VMS, it originally ran on VAX systems, and 
was later ported to the DEC Alpha and Intel Itanium.
Ř       DCL is the standard Command line interface (CLI) adopted by 
most of the operating systems that were sold by the former Digital 
Equipment Corporation (which has since been acquired by Hewlett-
Packard). It had its roots in the IAS and RSTS/11 operating systems, 
but took its most powerful form in the OpenVMS operating system. It 
was implemented as a standard across most of Digital's operating 
systems, notably RSX-11. A scripting language that was written when 
the Fortran programming language was in heavy use, it supports 
several datatypes, including strings, integers, bit arrays, arrays and 
Booleans, but not floating point numbers. Access to OpenVMS system 
services (kernel API) is through lexical functions, which perform the 
same as their compiled language counterparts and allow scripts to get 
information on system state. DCL includes IF-THEN-ELSE, access to all 
the RMS file types including stream, indexed, and sequential, but 
unfortunately lacks a DO-WHILE or other looping construct, requiring 
users to make do with IF and GOTO-label instead. For the OpenVMS 
implementation, the command line parser is a runtime library (CLI$) 
that can be compiled into user applications and therefore gives a 
consistent command line interface for both operating system supplied 
commands and user written commands. The command line must start 
with a verb and is then followed by arguments and/or position 
independent qualifiers (switches in UNIX terminology), which can occur 
anywhere on the command line, or position dependent qualifiers which 
affect the parameter they appear after. Most qualifiers are position 
independent; that is, they can appear anywhere in the command line. 
Only the first most significant part of the verb and qualifier name is 
required. An example operating system command may look like:
Ř       Record Management Services (abbreviated RMS) are procedures 
in the VMS operating system that programs call to process files and 
records within files. RMS allows programs to issue GET and PUT 
requests at the record level (record I/O) as well as read and write 
blocks (block I/O). VMS RMS is an integral part of the system software; 
its procedures run in executive mode.
