Interesting, but then I have not done a change directory so, in that limited
sense, current directory is the home directory. But, that is the special case.
They start out the same. DSPUSRPRF is the authoritative method - just seemed
easier to suggest WRKLNK to avoid explaining to page to last screen. I did
take an improper shortcut since the two definitely are not guaranteed to be the
same. Additional confusion was not needed by my reference to WRKLNK.

Quoting Scott Klement <midrange-l@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>:

Hi John,

The default parameter of WRKLNK is '*', which means you want to see all
files is the current directory.

"Current directory" is very different from "Home directory"

And both of them are different from "Current library".

where I work, WRKLNK shows me my home directory in the IFS, not current
library. I assumed this was the usual behavior. Is this not the case??
