Re: QCMDEXC (or) user written CLP program ?



fixed

Hi Tim,

It's been a long time since I did COBOL.  Here's the sample from the V4R4M0
ILE COBOL Reference Manual:

 |     SPECIAL-NAMES.  SYSTEM-CONSOLE IS SYSTM
 |        REQUESTOR IS WORK-STATION
 |        C01 IS NEXT-PAGE
 |        LOCAL-DATA IS LOCAL-DATA-AREA
 |        ATTRIBUTE-DATA IS ATTRB-DATA
 |        SYSTEM-SHUTDOWN IS SHUTDOWN-SWITCH
 |            ON STATUS IS SHUTDOWN-PENDING
 |        UPSI-0 IS UPSI-SWITCH-0
 |            ON STATUS IS U0-ON
 |            OFF STATUS IS U0-OFF
 |        UPSI-1 IS UPSI-SWITCH-1
 |            ON STATUS IS U1-ON
 |            OFF STATUS IS U1-OFF
 |        IBM-ASCII IS STANDARD-1
 |        CURRENCY SIGN IS "Y".

LOCAL-DATA is the environment name, and LOCAL-DATA-AREA is presumably the
name of a variable in WORKING-STORAGE.  So it looks right to me.  What
version are you on?
