IBM Script/PC 1.00

IBM Script/PC is a document formatter utility. It is similar to the mainframe DCF tool for IBM TSO or VM 370 that uses the Script/VS language. Unlike integrated word processors, one creates their document in a separate text editor and manually adds markup commands (called GML or Generalized Markup Language tags). This utility then interprets those commands to produce a formatted document regardless of the printer used.

On the PC, it competed against similar third party document formatters already on the market such as WORDIX+INDIX, ReadiWriter, and MicroScript.

Script/PC includes built in help reference, supplies markup macros for use with IBM Professional Editor, and can work with existing mainframe Script/VS documents.
