Javier,

My years of work I've always wondered if "there is an easier way". That's
all I was asking. It turns out, no. Just curious is all.

I am so surprised Brad, for me you are one of IBM i Gurus. Most of my
applications that I have written, have commands, as most need human
interaction to start and end them, because at the end, they are
stand-alone, NEP applications that someday need to be restarted. Ever
since I started writing user-defined commands, I have always known that
their defaults are stored in the definition of the command itself (meaning
the object). Also, I have had to change my own defaults in some cases.
And when I have saved them and restored them to some other libraries or
even boxes, they go along with the changed default.

I have never wondered that as you are doing now, but my experience says
that this is not probably available through some SQL interfaces so far as
you find now with say, IFS objects or even QSYS objects.

Maybe your concern can open IBM eyes to do that.

Javier.

Something I've been wondering for a long time.. are command defaults
stored
anywhere in a table... or are they actually part of the command itself?

Even if it's just if a user uses CHGCMDDFT to change it and it's only
stored then, that may be useful.

If they are stored in the command object.. I suppose there's no way to
get
the defaults without processing the command with a CL... maybe dumping
the
object? Man, I haven't done that forever. :)
