I see your point.

However, what would you expect a 'iseries' based command to give you, to 
work with a user space, that EDTF/DSPF doesn't?  If it isn't that much 
more capable, or easier to use, then I just as soon they put the money 
into something else.

If IBM created a command, DSPUSRSPC, and it looked pretty much like DSPF, 
would you be happy?

RE: Record size limitation in RPG - MQ Series

Iirc, I had a tool to do this and it took relatively "no time" to develop.
IF so, and IF I had access to it, I wouldn't release it to the public
because the code was crappy, however.

But what I wonder is how's come IBM hasn't come up with such-a tool all
these years?!?

Lemme answer that rhetorical question, Rob.  Because pseudo-dweebs prefer
EDTF and the Kings of the DCRS such as yourself prefer a Windoze-like
interface as opposed to CmdLine tools.  That's why.

And it's also because there are, according to Mr. Zollar, there are
3,000,000 Java programmers and 300,000 RPG programmers.  So, over-applying
the 80/20 rule, the 300,000 RPGers get essentially zero development 
and they're just expected to eat dung like they have been for the past
decade or two.

Is there something here you don't comprehend, Rob?
