I have a CLP that starts the S36 environment via the STRS36PRC
command. I want to now place this CLP into a S36 procedure. This
causes a problem as this CLP will now try to STRS36PRC while already
in the S36 environment. I have reviewed the RTVJOBA command but find
no attribute that tells me my environment. Any suggestions on how to
determine (in the CLP) if I am executing in the S36 environment?
The "Special environment" field for job information as retrieved
using both the QUSRJOBI API [JOBI0600 Format] and QWTRTVTA API [Format
RTVT0100 key 1908].
However I seem to recall that the STRS36PRC command, when invoked
while a S/36 procedure is _running_ [not just because the S/36EE is
active] will actually fail with an escape message that can be monitored.
If so, the error could be monitored, and from that, inferred the
request is not allowed; i.e. the command itself has done the work to
determine the condition.? Maybe this is not relevant, because perhaps
instead it was meant the CLP does STRS36; thus the desire is to prevent
the CLP from sending the job to the S36EE menu?
