Rob,

Or, if you want a real exercise in frustration, you can try submitting a
> Design Change Request to come up with a similar keyword for DDS.


Umm, how about if they call it WRDWRAP?  Oh wait, they already did that.
It's been in DDS for what, 12+ years now?  IIRC, it got added when the
so-called enhanced WS controllers were introduced and didn't that happen
around V2 something?  I'd hazard a guess that anymore there are very few
400's still running which have the older WS controller which doesn't support
the feature.  Various telnets client may or may not implement all the
features of the enhanced 5250 data stream, but this is one of that I suspect
pretty much all of them should support.

There is also the BLDFOLD keyword for output only fields, but for
input/output fields you want to use WRDWRAP and CNTFLD too if it inside a
window or the the left edge of subsequent lines should start in something
other than column 1.
