Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The IBM System/32 introduced in January 1975 was a low-end business computer. It was used primarily by small to midsize businesses for accounting applications. RPGII was the programming language for the machine. It was the successor to the IBM System/3 model 6 in the IBM midrange computer line. The computer looked like a large office desk with a very small 6 line by 40 character display. The machine had a built-in printer that directly faced the operator when seated. When keying the operator would be viewing the character display which was also common to the then current IBM 3740 family of data entry to floppy disk media. It had 16 kB or 32 kB of memory, a single hard drive that was available in 5 MB, 9 MB, or 13 MB sizes, and an eight-inch floppy drive, this drive could also read floppies from the IBM 3740 family. SEU, DFU, OCL, and #LIBRARY are some terms associated with the System/32. Migration to the IBM System/34 was generally simple as the source was programs just needed recompliation.
