Sometimes I brain-fart. After thinking about it for a few seconds, I'm
like "Why don't you just write this in C++?" 🙄

I agree, always struggle with CL...

Yeah, the C/C++ struct I got down, it's how to deal with quirky CL. Thank
you.

Yeah. Right now I'l looking for how to code the error code parameter.
Finding this stuff is like looking for a needle.

Kelly,

Sorry just thought about this, the QYASPOL will only return an error
if it cannot get the data back, if the iASP is up you will have no
error information? Does that make sense in additional to the last note?

You should check if Error Code bytes Available is greater than 0
else the API has generated the list.

Chris..

I don't do CL much, but occasionally I can fake my way through it.
We have in our startup program a brain-dead DLYJOB(900) to allow
time for an iASP to come up, then we start our business processes
once we think it's ready.
900 seconds is 15 minutes, a really long time. We recently turned
on another CPU and upgraded our storage to the latest NVM or
whatever IBM is calling it - basically we have no more spinning
disks. I thought I'd get clever and write 'something' that sits in
a loop waiting for the targeted iASP to become ready, then I could
unload the requisite RUNJVA commands that start business stuff up.
Then I wouldn't have to be up at 2AM on Sunday morning to do this
manually. Our iASP is called 'DATADEV'. I've had a dilly of a time
finding a good CL representation of the error code parameter, but
there are other parameters to fix right now too. Presently the
first SNDPGMMSG prints 'YASP0100', which it should. The second one
prints nothing at the moment, the third, random garbage, probaby
because the CHGVAR is just some

This is something I have in-progress. If anyone has something
better than this, hit me up. I'd appreciate it.
