In the Mainframe Wiki section, in the section Mainframe Definitions/IBM Definitions, there is a headline "Catch." It should be "Cache."

For "Buffer Pool," I would prefer something like "A group of identical buffers that can be used interchangeably."

For the headline "Catalog" I would like to see something like "A directory of data sets that specifies their location."

The headline, "Data set," "Data stored on disk or magnetic tape. A data set differs from a 'file' as used in Linux, Unix and Windows, in that it has a defined format, as opposed to a file that is just a collection of data with no defined format."

The headline "Condition Code" Should be split into two headlines

Condition Code (Hardware)

A two bit data area that many instructions set to summarize the result of executing the instruction. For example, an Add instruction may set the condition code to 00 to indicate the result of the instruction is 0, 01 to indicate the result is negative, 10 to indicate the result is greater than 0, or 11 to indicate the result represents an overflow; it is greater than the capacity of the output area.

Condition Code (Software)

A 12-bit binary value many programs set to indicate the result of running the program. This code is often referred to as a return code.

In the mainframe software list, it might be a good idea to add a qualifier at the start - for example

There are thousands of software products for IBM mainframe systems. This list concentrates on products intended for use with the IBM z/OS operating system. It is far from complete, and it does not include products for other z/Architecture operating systems such as z/VSE and z/VM.

In the ISPF section you might add

A major subsystem in ISPF is the Program Development Facility (PDF). PDF provides components to edit, view and manage data in the z/OS environment.
