I thought of that.  There are already several utilities out there that IBM 
has renamed to appease those who prefer the IBM commands.  Granted, in 
general I do prefer the IBM naming convention.  However, if a command is 
used across multiple operating systems, then I'll use the standard. 
Examples abound in the TCP/IP according to IBM world
NETSTAT = WRKTCPSTS
NSLOOKUP = STRDNSQRY
PING = VFYTCPCNN

But if this is all it takes to make a customer happy...

By the way, are DSPF/EDTF a pair of those commonly found commands?

RE: Record size limitation in RPG - MQ Series






Create a command called DSPUSRSPC. Have it associated with a CL of the
same name. One liner in the CL - DSPF.
