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?

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 dollars, 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? | -----Original Message----- | [mailto:midrange-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx]On Behalf Of rob@xxxxxxxxx | Earlier on in the thread it was stated that there was no utility to | display the contents of a user space.
