        Apple Macintosh
        DEC VAX, VAXft, MicroVAX, VAXstation, VAXserver/OpenVMS, OSF/1
      Provides users with access to VAX-based transaction processing
      programs from desktop environment. Reduces number of host processing
      cycles required for transaction processing. Provides API for custom
      written applications. Allows developers to use Apple's DAL or
      HyperCard as interfaces. Provides sample HyperCard application
      including XFCNs.- 
      Allows application programs running in DOS, Macintosh, SCO UNIX,
      ULTRIX and VMS Operating System environments to access VMS-based ACMS
      transaction processing applications through a desktop programming
      interface. Includes Desktop ACMS Portable Client for DOS, ULTRIX, SCO
      UNIX and VMS; Desktop ACMS Client for Macintosh; and Desktop ACMS
      Server for VMS. Includes ACMS, Rdb/VMS, DECforms, CDD/Repository for
      VMS and VAXset. Provides a set of application programming interfaces,
      along with support libraries, that allow software programs to interact
      with ACMS applications as authenticated clients. Supports
      non-blocking programs. Allows programs to be structured to include an
      event-dispatching mechanism and a collection of procedures that are
      invoked by this dispatching mechanism as a result of an event.
      Provides support for a synchronous command-line interface for in-line
      procedural implementation using Microsoft COBOL on DOS and
      asynchronous event-driven interface to accommodate such non-blocking
      tools as Motif or Microsoft Windows. Automatically calls presentation
      procedure routines by the Desktop ACMS Portable Client to display
      forms for the desktop user. Supports enhanced windows operating mode.
      Provides runtime libraries for the client operating systems to
      support the execution of client programs that use the Desktop ACMS
      Clients. Authenticates desktop clients. Calls tasks for users.
      Communicates with the desktop client program as part of ACMS task
      exchange step execution. Provides information to the ACMS system
      manager concerning Desktop ACMS submitters.=No
