Oops, there goes my privet RUNSQL CMD

Some years ago I created a *simple* RUNSQL CMD that receives a (SQL
statement) string,
saves it in a temp MBR in a temp file in QTEMP, runs it using RUNSQLSTM and
then clears all .
Example:
RUNSQL SQLSTMT('delete from vrsezkf a where not +
exists (select 1 from WKEVRSF b where +
b.WKENBR = a.WKENBR and b.VRSION = +
a.VRSION)')
Or
CHGVAR VAR(&SQL) VALUE('update QTEMP/HDRS4CSV +
set ' *CAT &HEADER *CAT ' = (select +
WHCHD1 from QTEMP/DSPFFD a where rrn(a+
) = ' *CAT &FLDNBRA *CAT ')')
RUNSQL SQLSTMT(&SQL)

Couldn't IBM ask around before appropriating the name RUNSQL ?

Last week at COMMON's Annual Meeting Kent Milligan said IBM was getting
ready to (or maybe already has) release a RUNSQL command. It will be
available via PTF for V7 and V6. I don't have many details beyond, it
will not be able to bring back a result set directly. You'll have to
populate a temp file and process from there.
