Hi Art We went looking everywhere and could not find an equivalent. So instead, we updated all our scripts to add an environment variable $DEVNULL, which we set to a real file when uname is OS400, and /dev/null when it isn't. Then when processing is done, we delete the $DEVNULL file if it's OS400.

I have some reports that are produced in a qshell C program but don't want to print, or save them. In Unix the reports could be sent to the dev/null object which is a 'black hole'. Is there such a object on the AS400 that behaves the same as dev/null.
