oops, you're right, it's another News400 utility.  Also written by Julian
Monypenny, from the June, 1995 issue.  You can probably download the code
from the web site, if not, let me know, I'll try to package something up
for you.

FNDSTRM uses an RPG to scan a given file member for a given string.  You
feed the command your 'find' parameters, including file and member to scan,
scan string, etc, and it returns values such as record number and column
where found.  It's a nice, reusable component.

In the SNDTCPF utility (August 1995) , it's used to scan the output member
for a completion message.  If none was found, the file wasn't sent.

Sorry for the confusion, I'd forgotten that FNDSTRM wasn't an op system
command.
