I also agree, though there are least two _possible_ alternatives to QCMDEXC or 
QCAPCMD.

First is to use REXX rather than CL -- which gives a similar result to the 
QCMDEXC use in some ways anyway.

Second is to issue the CRTUSRPRF but specifying *NONE as a single value for 
each qualified parameter that allows it. Then have a series of CHGUSRPRFs that 
each only set a specific parameter value. The first would set a qualified 
INLPGM *IF* it should be other than *NONE. The second would change ATNPGM *IF* 
it wasn't *NONE... etc.

Not pretty, I know, but it actually might be less coding and less error prone 
especially during any future maintenance.
