Subject: Running OS commands from SQL

Brain Fart!

I'm drawing a blank and I can't find my old examples since I changed jobs.

In SQL you can execute commands by specifying
CALL QCMDEXEC( '<command to run>' , <length of command string>)

But there is another way to do it which doesn't require the length parameter.

What is it?
