It's _supposed_ to have CL prompting, but it has never worked for me. 
When editing CL in Code400 and you press the prompt key, the associated
AS/400 session (where STRCDOE was entered) is supposed to receive focus
and the command is prompted there.  In my experience, the session
_never_ receives focus.  I have to Alt-backtab to get there.  And when I
press ENTER in that session, focus is never returned to Code400 like
it's supposed to, I have to Alt-backtab again.

Right now, I can't even use Code400.  I applied PTF 5763PW1-SF55538 over
a week ago and now STRCODE doesn't work.  I use the Code400 mailing list
and Code400 newsgroup, and have posted there repeatedly regarding my
problem.  I got a promise of help from IBM a week ago, but since then
they seem to have fallen off the face of the earth.  And stupid me,
since the PTF was supposedly a no-brainer, I went and applied it
permanently.

You'd think after 25 years in this business, I'd know better.
