While Control Language (CL) has been around for over 30 years, my impression is that the last six years have seen more enhancements to CL than all of the preceding years combined. In fact, I'm surprised CL wasn't renamed to CL II at some point in the last six years! This article reviews many of the program-development-oriented CL enhancements that have become available to you in recent releases. While many new and enhanced CL commands in every release are related to running or configuring the system, this article focuses on the commands that target application development—that is, the commands that are used only within a CL program.
