Robert McCarty

You may know most of the commands... WRKACTJOB, WRKSYSVAL, etc, but member Robert Mc Carty took it one step further and created his own short-cuts in QGPL.


Code Robert's version

     WRKACTJOB                   WA
     WRKSPLF                     WS
     WRKJOBQ QBATCH              JQ
     WRSYSSTS                    WSS
     STRPDM                      SP
     STRSQL                      SQ
     WRKQRY                      WQ

He used WRKOBJ *ALL *ALL *CMD to recreate his own in QGPL. He understands that he'll lose them when he upgrades, but oh the time saved!
