Hi James

I'm interested. I find I need to do more & more with IFS objects and so
far I've just used QSH commands issued from RPG/CL to handle that. It's
on my TO-DO list to learn about the APIs, but without knowing C[1] and
having enough time it's a bit tricky. Once I've got to grips with a few
examples I'd hope to be able to contribute too. Where can I get the
stuff you've already done ;-)

Regards, Martin
