Some reasons for qualifying the library in a CL program:

I have other reasons, will reply later with additional information.

Hint: There are some very good reasons for qualifying the IBM commands used in certain CL programs to QSYS.

What are some of the CL programming standards that your shop has found valuable?
I would think that a few standards are NEVER have the following in production CL:
- never have a library name in CL (OK allow QTEMP)
- never have even a variable library name in CL
- never have a person's name or email address in CL (OK in author comments)

Would a library in CL ever be necessary? I would think that good coding would allow the *libl to do the work of choosing the correct lib in almost all cases.

Comments and additional good practices?
