MVS/Quick-Ref(TM) is the premier product for instant online access to message descriptions and programming information on MVS systems. MVS/Quick-Ref "pops-up" over the active ISPF application, giving you a quick answer to an MVS-related question, then goes away without affecting the active ISPF application!
MVS/Quick-Ref is a "pop-up" quick reference aid for ISPF and ROSCOE/ETSO users under the MVS operating system. The term "pop-up" in this context refers to MVS/Quick-Ref's ability to "pop-up" over the active ISPF application, give you a quick answer to an MVS-related question, then go away without affecting the active ISPF application.

MVS/Quick-Ref saves you time and money! You no longer need to stop work at your terminal to look up a message or amend code in a manual that's probably out of date. The most frequently needed MVS reference information is instantly displayed by MVS/Quick-Ref in a concise and easy-to-read format.
