Through the use of API's or the use of either QCAPCMD, QCMDEXC or 
system().  Whichever one I favor at the time.  I like the flexibility of 
QCAPCMD, but it takes a little longer to set up.  Since Barbara showed us 
how to use RPG's PSDS to handle QCMDEXC better I've gotten rather fond of 
that one again over system().

How would you code the following in CL?
callp(e) QCMDEXC(mycommand:cmdlen);
Select;
When exceptionid=*blanks;
  // everything is cool
When exceptionid=YouCannotUseThatCommand;
  // oops security issue, alert the proper people
When exceptionid=YouCannotAccessThatLibrary;
  // library issue
When exceptionid=YouCannotAccessThatFile;
  // File issue
Other;
  // now we have an opportunity for improvement
EndSl;

The following?
MYCOMMAND ...
MONMSG CPF###1 EXEC(DO)
...
ENDDO
MONMSG CPF###2 EXEC(DO)
...
And what happens if an intermediate command in the first MONMSG triggers a 
different MONMSG condition?  Once you get a few lines of code in there it 
get's tough to associate what triggered off what MONMSG.  I just find 
using the API's encourage a more structured model.  And thus may encourage 
you to trap for more error conditions.  Sort of like assuming an error on 
a read was due to the fact that the record was not found.  When it could 
be any number of conditions:  you forgot to open the file, a trigger 
program aborted the read, etc.
And especially since most people using CL probably also use SEU it's not 
that the code will be spaced nice, (read as "imbedded do loops").

Re: Scoop on v5r3 CL enhancements






Just a small question..

How do you constuct complicated job streams with many programs ?
I assume you have job streams of some sort.
