Thanks for the vote of confidence. Unfortunately, without doing research to
refresh my memory, I can not provide any better answer than Tom Liotta did.
I do not remember all interfaces that do, and do not, support the limited
capability function.  What I do remember is that at one time those
functions that did not support limited capabilities worked that way because
they used the same CL command submitting interface for commands that came
from a command line as they used for commands generated to implement GUI
operation when a user pressed a mouse button. In other words by the time
the command reached the operating system there was no easy way to know if
the command was from a command line or not.
