Where am I--Who am I

We work with many iSeries with many 5250 sessions, logged with different users for security reasons for the same machine, at the same time. It is very important to know easily the mane of the machine, the user etc...

Here is a command WW (Where, Who) which gives the essentials information of the session we work with.


  The command source:

CMD        PROMPT('WW')  /* Where am I ? */ 

the CL source attached

/* variables used */ 

DCL &USER *CHAR 10   
DCL &JOB  *CHAR 10

DCL &TIME *CHAR 6     
DCL &MSG    *CHAR 80 
DCL &NBR    *CHAR 6
