in CL. It is a nightmare trying to get all the quotes,
double quotes, + CL continuations, etc just right.
Nothing to do with the DOCSQL command, it is the
CL parser that is so cumbersome.
When it comes to string-handling, it is tough to beat. And its
integration with CL is unparalleled. REXX is underused and
underappreciated (mainly due to being underexposed, I think). It's
just about perfect for this task.
