The CL Corner: Add Your Own Options to the IBM WRKOUTQ Command

Did you know you could enhance the IBM "Work with" commands?

Over the years, many users have asked for the ability to enhance IBM-provided displays. With V6R1, this is now possible with the commands Work with Output Queue (WRKOUTQ), Work with Spooled Files (WRKSPLF), Work with Job Spool Files (WRKJOB OPTION(*SPLF), and even the Status Print (D P) of the System/36 environment. While IBM continues to reserve numeric options such as 1 for send, 2 for change, 3 for hold, and so on, users can now define their own alphabetic options such as A for archive, E for email, F for fax, and so on. In this article, we will see how to add a new option, P (Print Next or Prioritize), to move a spooled report to the top of an output queue.

I have written in the past of the importance of having solid passwords to protect your data. I haven't offered, however, any convenient and inexpensive utilities to manage passwords at home, in the office, or on the road. One such utility that has recently been released following a complete rewrite is Password Profiler 2. This automated password filler enables you to log into Web sites and quickly complete lengthy registration and checkout forms, allows you to save logins to frequently visited sites, and provides for multiple profiles for separating business and personal information.

You recently added another new application to your IBM i (AS/400, iSeries, System i) that uses IFS directories to store data. You already had Domino information in the IFS, not to mention AS/400 Access data. The IFS area continues to evolve and take up more and more of your disk space. Now, the big question is this: Do you have the tools needed to monitor and track the growth of IFS directories on your AS/400?
