I have a client that is adamant they need a directory in the IFS where the
directory name ends with a period.



Apparently this is not allowed in windows but the customer does not care
"they are only going to use files in the IFS"

I can create a directory in the IFS that ends with a period



When I use CPYTOSTMF to create a file in the directory, the command runs
fine with no errors in the joblog only a message CPCA082 "Object copied"

However there is no file in the directory, and I cannot find the file
anywhere.



Any ideas?

How can I get files into the directory ending with period?



Thanks in advance for any ideas and/or suggestions



John



P.S. Just for fun I tested this process with a period in the middle of the
directory name (rather than at the end) and all worked fine
