The CL Corner: Isn't Recursion Great?

Find out how to easily check the contents of IFS subdirectories.

bruce_viningWritten by Bruce Vining

In last month's article, "What IFS Files Have Not Been Used For Three or More Days?," we saw how a CL program can easily determine how many days it's been since a file has been used. We also looked briefly at how we could automate the removal of files that have not been accessed within a user-determined number of days. Today, we will expand on last month's program with more specific handling of the stream files (*STMF) and directories (*DIR) that are processed by the DIR3 program.

New PHP Toolkit, New Oracle Connectivity Highlight Zend Server 5.1

An XML open-source toolkit, addressing programmer-requested needs, is the latest child from the Zend-IBM partnership.

With all the emphasis on planning these days, I have to say there are times when it's better just to act and amaze yourself with how much gets done as a result. I was trying to arrange a meeting with the folks at Zend last week as they left from different points on the globe for COMMON Europe in Milan, Italy, but we finally threw up our hands and just decided to get it done—right now!

Partner TechTip: Hey, Programmer, You'll Love Robot/SCHEDULE!

Robot/SCHEDULE makes programmers productive and happy.

tom_huntingtonWritten by Tom Huntington

To automate any platform, you need batch commands and scripts. Every programmer calls programs and passes parameters to them. For most tasks, another task must run first. Data must be pushed or pulled from a different server in the network. Documentation is necessary to determine the impact of changing an application.
