Make an RPG program to show a PF of some arbitrary record length that fits 
on your screen. Display that PF and allow a to be written so that ever 
evolving script changes can be made.
 
Since your rule is always the same you could then write an RPG program to 
copy the PF's data  to a similar file in QTEMP that has the member name 
FTPCMDS and watch for the line that needs to have the variable added.  Do 
it there.  RPGIV  is much easier to do this than CL in my opinion.
