From Christine Casey, IBM:

This package lets you write CMS GUI programs using the GUI Builder visual tool. Much of the code that is common in most GUI applications will be done for you, and you choose the objects you want to create and have displayed in your GUI window. The additional coding of wiring the objects together, and any host logic must be added manually once you have the base program that was created by the builder.

The GBOS2.EXEBIN file can be downloaded to an OS/2 workstation in binary, and when executed will explode into several files in a GBUILDER directory. Then issuing GBUILDER will start the tool for you to build your CMS GUI applications. You can choose to have the source code generated in Rexx or SAS C++, which can then be uploaded to your VM/ESA system and compiled and run from there.
