The Programmer's Guide from Fidelity National Information Services is a valuable resource for the rapid development of Mumps language routines.

The online version is available for UNIX/Linux here. Bookmark the site and you have a Mumps language reference in your browser.

For even more convenience, speed, and reliability, you may wish to use a local copy on your workstation computer. To do this,

  1. Download the zip file from here.
  2. Unzip it in a directory somewhere on your computer.
  3. Using your browser's menus, select File > Open File and open the index.htm file in the directory you just created.
  4. Save a bookmark to the browser page that opens.
  5. Using Bookmarks > Organize Bookmarks open the new bookmark and modify the Location.
    1. The location should look like this: file:///somepath/gtm-pg/GTM-PG-UNIX44/wwhelp/wwhimpl/js/html/wwhelp.htm
    2. Replace everything after "UNIX44/" with "index.htm"
    3. It should look like this: file:///somepath/gtm-pg/GTM-PG-UNIX44/index.htm
    4. Save the modified bookmark.
  6. As soon as you open index.htm, it redirects itself so that if you bookmark what you opened, you get a broken link. This method gives you working frames.

An online version for the VMS Alpha system (the hardware the VA uses) is here, but there does not appear to be a downloadable version available.
