PCO/STRPCPCMD are native iOS command combos.

I believe most if not all emulators support PCO/STRPCPCMD.

Certainly the one I sell and support, WinTronix IP Client (formerly the Synapse 5250 emulator), works with PCO/STRPCPCMD.

STRPCCMD does have some issues trying to open a DOS window in Windows 7, 8, and presumably 10. IBM does have a number of PTFs to address these issues. In particular there are issues trying to run the Windows START commnand as a parameter in PCO/STRPCPCMD.

Hmm. PCO and STRPCCMD. The plot thickens.

And one must also take into account emulators that have no PCO or
STRPCCMD capability whatsoever. Which presumably includes all emulators
not provided by IBM, since I've never seen any publicly available docs
on how the whole PCO/STRPCCMD protocol is supposed to work.
