Charlie

Example 1 will end (LR On) when records are completely read from both files
Example 2 will end (LR On) when FILE3 is empty(FILE4 May still have records)
Example 3 will end (LR On) when FILE6 is empty(FILE5 May still have records)

I'm ready charlie, How about that RPG/Midrange Trivia session we talked about
in Atlanta?  

Remember?

Without looking, What was Position 45 in the header Spec (HSpec) used for 
in RPGII?  ok ok,  How about; How was CORE STORAGE INDEX defined in RPG
and what was it's use?

I can't wait for CUDS!
