Re: SAVRSTxxx and STRPASTHR



fixed

Hi Rob

as I've told you a number of times before EE is easy to set up. When
someone else tells you the same thing you still don't want to believe
it.

If you are using SNA then EE is IBM's drop in replacement

For shops that are using these functions the hour or two to se up EE
is much less cost and much less risk than trying to reverse engineer
the equivalent of the SAVRST* commands, identify DDM files, SNDNETF,
SNDMSG etc etc.

Allowing even 3 or 4 hours for the EE configuration is way,way less
cost and risk than identifying where SNA commands are used and coding
a replacement as you say you did, and urge others to do.

Just because you put your shirt on backwards doesn't mean everyone
else should wear theirs the same way.

The fact that you've done this a bazillion times.

As a side, when people move stuff from development to production outside
of the change management system I invariably get a call "I can't delete
this program I restored, can you do it for me?" I believe their
intentions are good, restore it in a test library and test on real
production data instead of a full restore of their production data on the
development machine. (Why, I don't know.) And since they have *ALLOBJ on
the development machine (and I'm not allowed to change that) and they
don't on production they keep stepping on their winkie.
