Notice also that:

1) I asked what was meant by "reverse" (reverse of WHAT? Key? RRN?) and
the poster did not clarify, but merely restated the same question.

2) I asked for a definition of the file to read in reverse, and the
poster did not reply.

It sure makes me wonder about this OP!

FWIW -- I wrote myself a little CL program that does indeed read a file
in reverse RRN sequence. It works on any PF, and runs very fast. Not
sure I want to post it here, though -- I'd say the best answers have
already been given: "Do it in RPG."

Really curious people?
Study question on some quiz prep somewhere?
Question sponsored by committee to kill productivity by sending talented

Will it next appear on as400specialists group in linked in?
