It's designed to work just like system values, except you create them. There
are commands and APIs to work with, add, retrieve, change, display, and
delete user values.  It also tracks when and who last updated a user value. 

When you are retrieving a user value you can lock it for a specified time
period. This might be used, for example, when you are incrementing a
counter. You would retrieve the user value with a lock, increment the
counter, then update the user value, which releases the lock. However, if
you don't update it within the specified time period, the lock is removed
and the user value becomes available. This prevents hung programs from
locking everybody out of a user value.

        I don't receive MC, so nope.  What's it do? 
        Is anyone using the user value utility (WRKUSRVAL) that I created
and wrote
        about in Midrange Computing last year?
        I'm just curious.
