David,

Format *LONGJUL is available on commands such as CVTDAT, APIs such as
Convert Date and Time Format (QWCCVTDT), and logical file mapping from
L to Zoned, Packed, or Character fields.  The one place *LONGJUL is not
supported is as the DATFMT of an actual L type element.

*LONGJUL provides YYYYDDD formatting in addition to the previous *JUL
formatting of YYDDD.
