        [Hatzenbeler, Tim]  I think you have a good idea here, I would like
the ability to  run commands straight from RPGIV or (CL II) without having
to use the qcmdexc.

        what do you think

        cf            select
        cf            when    choice ='5'
        cf            dspsplf
        cf            when    choice = '6'
        cf            dspsyssts
        cf            endsl
         
        I think a marriage between RPG IV & CL, would be fantastic.

        For OVRDBF, this would be cool and a lot more maintainable since you
would not have to worry about a front end CL to handle the Sort Criteria,
your program could dynamically set up the sort's inside of the RPG, I know
you can do this now, but I'm just talking about readability.

           F  Names    if            K             Disk     Usropn

        cF   Ovrdbf (Names) share (*yes) ........

        cf    open Names
        cf      dou %eof(names)
        cf        read names
        cf      enddo
        cf    close names

        cf    dltovr (Names)

        I know you were being sarcastic but you did open a Pandora's box in
my mind when you suggested CL II.

        just my 2 1/2 cents.

        Tim
