Command short cuts in QGPL

You may know most of the commands... WRKACTJOB, WRKSYSVAL, etc, but Search400.com member Robert Mc Carty took it one step further and created his own short-cuts in QGPL.

You may know most of the commands... WRKACTJOB, WRKSYSVAL, etc, but Search400.com member Robert Mc Carty took it one step further and created his own short-cuts in QGPL.

Example:

Code Robert's version

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

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!


Robert McCarty is an iSeries programmer/analyst who has worked on the iSeries for three plus years. He came from a S/36 shop and has a total of thirty years in IT.

Roberts advice for working on the iSeries: Use GO MAIN to get to your destination. If ever in doubt, use WRKCMD *ALL to view all that is logged on to the IBM iSeries Web site. Also, subscribe to good newsletters, such as the ones Search400.com offers. "Thank goodness that there are people out there who loving teaching for nothing!"
