Good Tip; Good example; Good documentation-reading. Charlie Shipp 04:19, 20 June 2010 (UTC)


Good Tip - and it works with %SYSFUNC. How much better could it get? --Art Carpenter 04:05, 13 July 2010 (UTC)


Good tip. Is it worth an explicit mention that it works with %sysfunc? And then maybe add the category tag for %sysfunc? --Don Henderson 13:18, 13 July 2010 (UTC)


Awesomely great; Let's see IIA match this .!. Charlie Shipp 03:20, 18 July 2010 (UTC) Promoting.


Mike, You are correct that you can't retrieve the return code with CALL SYSTEM routine, you can get it with the SYSTEM function. rc=system( 'mkdir ... ' ) ; --Ken Borowiak 14:53, 18 July 2010 (UTC)


And it gets even better. You can actually move a file to a different directory using this function. --Don Henderson 00:17, 24 November 2010 (UTC)
