I just checked a V5R3 box I have access to - that program is in QSYS - and documentation does say it first came out in V2R2 - so someone had to have removed it, so far as I can tell.

I won't say HTH!

a V5R4 PTF that is needed to get this API prior to 6.1?

I just can't believe how IBM have managed to add many more clicks to
getting to the same data! And I DO remember all the talk about replacing
the books.

I have kept links to the sites for earlier releases, from before

I also have a link to a general IBM library site - marvelous place
actually - with documentation it's hard to get anywhere else I know of -
like MOD:CA and other architecture documentation. That link is


I think it is called IBM Library Server Library - you probably already
knew about it.

I should probably put all the old links I have on the wiki here - not
sure I can add articles there.

Knowledge Center, it looks like it was not a part of V5R4. <<SNIP>>

FWiW, at the _bottom_ of every page that documents an API, since
some very long time ago, a notation should exist to identify when that
API was introduced. The 6.1 doc for the aforementioned API, for
example, should have included the following text: "API introduced:

While that tidbit is not helpful to know when any particular portion
of information may be available from an API [e.g. a new format or new
fields that came with a newer release], at least an inference that
there should exist specific doc for that API is intuitively obvious.

Although with the recent transition to the KnowledgeCenter from the
InfoCenter, IBM has ?apparently abandoned? any visibility to [at
least] the documentation at both v5r3 and v5r4; Or so I have inferred
from my inability to access docs from bookmarked references and
inability to "add product" of those releases of the OS :-( While I
have seen some other anecdotal references to the new KC and maybe only
allusions to loss of the IC on these lists, I am actually surprised
there has not been a topic dedicated to that topic here on midrange-l,
like there were when IC came along to replace [the ?Books? of the
"online library" or whatever was the moniker for] the prior web-based
docs interface. Why IBM leaves the v5r1 and v5r2 ICs but seems to
have obliterated those of v5r3 and v5r4, is nonsensical IMO; though I
am biased, because my only access to the OS is via a v5r3 system.
