VM/370 minidisk dump (Nov. 2004)
ZIP file (1,262,587 bytes) of an unlabelled tape in AWS format (4,527,014 bytes) containing a TAPE DUMP of a 5,582 800-byte block VM minidisk containing CMS games files.
I think that says it all.
PL/I (F) Language Reference Manual (Aug. 2009)
PDF file (6,754,065 bytes) of the IBM manual GC28-8201-2 IBM System/360 Operating System PL/I (F) Language Reference Manual downloaded from Karl Kleine's website and OCR processed to make searchable.
The 2009 pdf replaces the April 2007 (25,049,607 bytes) version which was a bit big. The size reduction was achieved by JPEG compression of the page bitmaps. While JPEG does lossy compression I can't detect any image quality degradation.
VS2 System Codes Manual (Apr. 2007)
PDF file (4,867,274 bytes) of the IBM manual GC38-1008-9 OS/VS Message Library: VS2 System Codes downloaded from the softlib website and converted to TIFF and OCR processed to make searchable.

ZIP of an XMIT file of a PDS of various BMP formats used while developing BMP file picture display support in REVIEW.
OS/360 Flow (Dec. 2007)
ZIP of a BMP file which can be uploaded and displayed under TSO by REVIEW. Make the target LRECL greater than 80 to simplify left/right scrolling.
OS/VS2 MVS Flow (Dec. 2007)
Dubious touch up job on a wall chart - there's a better version around.

z/OS Flow (Jan. 2009)
PDF file (117,179 bytes) downloaded from IBM circa 2006. It allegedly gives the z/OS version of the system flow wall charts above, but a display of the properties indicates that it was done for MVS/ESA SP4. Mind you, probably not a lot to change since then anyway. This version has the typo of EACP fixed to read EXCP. Unlike the scans of the older posters above, this is high-quality CorelDraw output. I can find no copyright mark on it, so here it is.

PDF file (1,801,247 bytes) of an OCR (searchable) version of the IBM Manual GC26-3875-0 OS/VS2 MVS Data Management Services Guide originally from circa 1976 but updated by TNL to August 1978.

OS/VS SMP System Programmer's Guide (Dec. 2009)
PDF file (2,854,784 bytes) of an OCR (searchable) version of the IBM Manual GC28-0673-6 OS/VS System Modification Program (SMP) System Programmer's Guide which describes the formal system maintenance infrastructure before SMP/E was used.
OS/360 Sort/Merge (Nov. 2010)
PDF file (3,769,329 bytes) of an OCR (searchable) version of the IBM Manual GC28-6543-5 System/360 Operating System Sort/Merge which describes the use of the Sort/Merge program IERRCO00 which shipped with OS/360.
It seems that since I added the foldout page in Appendix
A the file is no longer viewable via web browser, so save it
to a file and then open it.
OS/VS2 MVS SPL: VTAM Level 2 (Mar. 2011)
PDF file (2,658,144 bytes) of an OCR (searchable) version of the IBM Manual GC28-0688-2 OS/VS2 MVS System Programming Library: VTAM (Virtual Telecommunications Access Method) Level 2 which describes the parameters, definitions, operation and other aspects of the last free VTAM from around 1977.

PDF file (29,523,613 bytes) of an OCR (searchable) version of the FACOM (Fujitsu Automated Computers) Manual 64SG-1000E-1 FACOM OS IV/F4 General Description contributed by Mark Waterbury. The vast majority of this manual is applicable to MVS, except for such things as the AIM data base and channel-DAT, of course. Oh, and TSO is known as TSS here. Pretty good stuff for 1976.
