Anyone know the inthe IFS of the scp and sftp cmd?

They are located in /QOpenSys/usr/bin/sftp (or scp)

One easy way to determine this would be to:

1) type: CALL QP2TERM
2) type: whence sftp
3) type: whence scp

'whence' is a tool that will find a program in your PATH, and print the location it found. (it does not call the program, just prints the location.)

I recommend that you do not hard code this path name into a program if you can help it. Instead, use ADDENVVAR to set it as part of your PATH (or PASE_PATH). You can use LEVEL(*SYS) to make it apply to all jobs on the system.

That way, if you ever decide to test a different copy of scp or sftp that are located in another directory, you can just set your PATH differently. Or if IBM should ever load scp/sftp in a different location, then you can just change your PATH, you won't have to change the programs.

It's very much like a *LIBL, actually...
