Hi, Jerry:

Actually I was just funnin' since Resolutions was tied with S/38 in that article a few posts back... and Requirements was associated with AS/400 a couple of posts back.

But I also could be mistaken. I'm no COMMON expert (nor an uncommon one, some would be quick to point out). I do remember Resolutions from those days - or I think it was those days. But here I am once again, way off topic, so I shall stop.

Not saying you're in error, Dennis, and my memory gets parity checks
frequently, but I remember serving on the System/36 Requirements
committee,
which was pretty much in the same time period as the System/38. Maybe
the
36 folks were just a little bit more aggressive than the damby, pamby
38
crowd. .-)

I do recall that they were Resolutions at some point, just can't swear
to
what the point was.

Ummm - might have to check my history books, but I am pretty certain
that
S/38 and its Resolutions predated AS/400 and its Requirements. :)

Before that they were called "Requirements". We even had software
running
on a rack mounted AS/400 into which attendees could enter
requirements,
and
then committees for each project (now defunct) could edit / merge
them,
and
then members could vote on them. Chuck Myaard and I used to have to
tear
down the AS/400 in Registration on committee night (usually lasting
past
midnight) and then re-assemble it in Reg before 0800. Chuck was a
wizard
with hardware; I just strung Twinax cables - miles of it!

I imagine IBM eventually balked at the term "Requirements" because it
gave
the impression that the ones voted by the members would be
implemented.
Not
always the case.

Dang! I missed that link at first read! Sorry! ("Resolutions" was
the
answer.)

Now where is that needed RECALL button?

These were COMMON User requests to IBM from S/38 days. (What
<i>did</i>
they call those things back then??!!??)

One I liked from the same set, was a request to change library list
between command executions. IBM response: "AVAILABLE. Press ENTER
on
a command line. Note how the screen blinks."

Luis--

The command you want was created Once Upon A Time:

INCKBDVTG - Increase Keyboard Voltage. Useful to prevent users
from
replying to messages that say "Contact IT before continuing!"

In the same vein, TRMUSR (*IMMED|*FAMILY) lets you get rid of a
user
who Just Won't Learn!
The *FAMILY option increases voltage to the monitor until it gives
off a burst of radiation sufficient to sterilize the user.
The *IMMED option increases the voltage even more-- and leaves
just
a
pile of ashes on the chair.
Unfortunately, it only works with CRT monitors.

See http://archive.midrange.com/midrange-l/200205/msg01600.html
for
the entire list of needed commands!

Robert,

You could define a BEFORE trigger (either for update and/or
insert)
and
check and fix the bad data before it gets to the file.

That said, although chopping off fingers seems a little extreme,

thought that it would be nice to have a way to send electric

the
users thru the keyboard :-)

IF %USER_ERROR >= n;
SEND_SHOCK();
