what is the difference between conversational and psuedo conversational programming in cics from the user's point of view?

from the terminal point of view it is that conversational would never leave the control on the screen until some value is entered by the user whereas in psuedo conversational programming control would be lost and would be returned back when the user enters values on the screen. All this is terminal point of view what difference does it make to the programmer or the user????

From my point of view, when I design a CICS application, the end user will never know if this is a conversational or pseudo. Here is a quote from the fine manual:
Quote:
A pseudoconversational transaction sequence contains a series of nonconversational transactions that look to the user like a single conversational transaction involving several screens of input. Each transaction in the sequence handles one input, sends back the response, and terminates.
