The CL Corner: Trying to Get a Handle on Your IFS?

Many companies, as they exchange information with other businesses, use communication methods such as FTP to send and receive various files. These files, often stored in the IFS of the i, then need to be managed (for example, periodically deleted) when the processing associated with them has completed. This type of file management unfortunately is done manually in all too many cases. This article is the first in a series looking at how you might automate some, if not all, of this management responsibility.
