A technique is described which allows exchange diskette data sets to be read and written by application programs running under the IBM Series/1 Event Driven Executive (EDX) system. The application program is allowed to process exchange data sets in the same manner that EDX data sets are processed. The concepts and facilities of the Event Driven Executive system are described in the System Guide SC34-1702. Also of interest is the EDX Internal Design Guide LY34-0212. Additional diskette details may be found in the IBM Diskette General Information Manual GA21-9182. The application program "opens" the exchange data set using this technique. Subsequent operations are performed using conventional EDX diskette input and output operations.
