Sign me up for "dweeb for a day" - I ain't no queen!

EDTF is nice if you have a strictly character user space - it does not show you bytes below x40 and equal to xFF. You could probably insert them - it can be done with a macro in PC5250 - but you'll mever know what you've changed.

DSPF does allow you to see the hex values, although it is a bit clumsy. F10 in DSPPFM is similar, except that F11 to display over-under is maginificent.

It is possible to copy a user space to a PF, using the CPY command. Who'da thunk it? It fits the need only wometimes.

If you have a better (low- or no-cost) tool than DMPOBJ(or DSPF) for seeing the contents of a user space that is used as output for the various APIs that need user spaces, let us know. There's a lot of binary data in there, usually. Of course, you can see stuff with debug, so that's an option. Or is you are populating you own user space and want to see what went wrong. For those of us who need to see what is there, this stuff is not dweebish - it's tools of the trade.

Earlier on in the thread it was stated that there was no utility to
display the contents of a user space.  For example, if you wanted to see
if your program was updating it properly.  Thus, in that case, DSPF is a
valid utility.  I suppose you could do a DMPOBJ, but I think that is even
more 'dweeby'.
