Let me re-phrase that:  written by a reactionary gearhead.  (The people that
wrote the VB code may not even know *nix...)

There is an OVERWHELMING view, in IBM, that turns a blind eye to the 400.
They just DON'T WANT TO SEE that the 400 has a BETTER way, has had it for 20
YEARS, and that they actually having SOME CATCHING UP TO DO.. rather than
the other way around.  (Or rather that it works both ways.)

That's my explanation for why some people prefer to do things the hard way:
keeping coding practices using the *nix style, or the VB style...  Long past
where it makes sense, in some cases.  (We all do that, of course, but some
examples are pretty extreme, and I think this is one of 'em.)

Again, JMNSHO...

| | Ok, bit of confusion here ... on the above web page they
| reference copying
| | a program ... but they use IFS CPYcommand to do the copy instead
| | of regular
| | CRTDUPOBJ.
| |
| | Any ideas why?
