Hello Buck,

I still use it to distribute source code.  The recipient simply has to download 
the file and 
SBMDBJOB (maybe edit the target library name) and it all gets compiled.

It avoids having to create the pack/unpack sort of mechanism so many people 

If the recipient wants to split the source up into the 'normal' source files, 
CPYF commands in 
the jobstream will do that.

And for what it's worth ... jobstream support is not likely to go away because 
they're used to 
build OS/400 and the LPPs.

Simon Coulter.
