** RMS (Record Management Services) provide a comprehensive API for
** manipulating files and records within those files.  RMS supports multiple
** file formats, including sequential, relative, and indexed, and many
** record formats including fixed, variable, fixed variable, and stream.
** Additionally, RMS will allow all record handling to be bypassed to allow
** direct block manipulation.  It supports transparent network file access
** (via DECnet), tape handling, even terminal I/O.
**
**  See the "OpenVMS Record Management Services Reference Manual" and the
** "Guide to OpenVMS File Applications" for extensive documentation on this
** API.
**
** This program will demonstrate some simple calls to the API.  There is
** a _lot_ of functionality in RMS, and I have no way to demo it all.
**
** Read The Fine Manuals.
