Does anyone know where I can find a good tutorial/white paper/article on
using the IFS APIs in ILE COBOL? I have checked the ILE COBOL programming
guide and the ILE COBOL reference manual, but found virtually nothing. I
have checked the Information Center, which talks quite a bit about the IFS
APIs, but which has no COBOL examples or even explanations for use in COBOL.

The ILE COBOL pogramming guide says it is possible to call IFS APIs using
CALL LINKAGE TYPE statements in the SPECIAL NAMES section of the ENVRONMENT
division. But then it doesn't exlain how to use the APIs in the PROCEDURE
division. Could anyone explain this to me?

What I would really like to see is an IFS Redbook, covering concepts of the
IFS, management of the IFS using Operations Navigator and Netserver, and
programming with the IFS APIs in each ILE languages. Maybe I will fire off a
recommendation to IBM...

Thanks in advance for any help.
