The CL Corner: What's New with Files?

Are you up on IBM file-related enhancements?

bruce_viningWritten by Bruce Vining

In the course of recent user group presentations and discussions, I have been surprised by the number of CL developers who are unaware of IBM-provided CL file-related enhancements that have become available in the past few releases. In hindsight, it is possible that you may not have the time to review all new commands, new parameters on existing commands, and relaxed limitations for existing commands. The focus of this article will be getting you up to date on file-related CL enhancements that IBM made in V5R3, V5R4, and V6R1.
