FYI, this manual got dropped (AFAIK) some time ago, but the 5250 data
streams are documented in the 5494 Functions Reference Manual, which
you should have on your softcopy CD.  It will include the data streams
for the enhanced functions which did not exists in the old days.

I still have an even older version, SA21-9247-2, from May 1980 which I
used for doing data streams on the S/34.  The S/34 and S/36 Functions
Reference manuals also included information on the data streams.  In
fact, I think they were better then the 5250 Functions Reference
manual.

But these days I'd recommend the DSM API's over UDDS.
