I guess what I am trying to say is, why is IBM linking CL with green screens? CL is a Control Language. It does whatever you do it to, right? Just like RPG. Are they going to can RPG because people write green screen applications with it too? Does that mean we are no longer going to be able to write batch jobs that do more than one thing? Or is IBM going to, heaven forbid, move the batch commands to a PC? How are we going to run our steps without CL? Regards, Jim Langston Buck Calabro wrote: > Jim, > Think "command line."
