PTF UK90007 for z/OS DFSORT V1R5 and PTF UK90006 for DFSORT R14 (April, 2006) provide important enhancements to DFSORT and DFSORT's ICETOOL for extracting variable position/length fields (e.g. CSV, delimited fields, keyword separated fields, etc) into fixed parsed fields (PARSE, %nn); justifying and squeezing data (JFY, SQZ); comparing and inserting past and future date constants (DATEn-r, DATEn+r); testing for numerics and non-numerics (NUM); displaying hexadecimal floating-point values as integers (FL); splitting files contiguously (SPLIT1R); suppressing page ejects in reports (BLKCCH1, BLKCCH2, BLKCCT1); using symbols for output columns (sym:); using system symbols (e.g. &SYSPLEX) in symbol constants (S'string'); reformatting records before selecting or splicing (INREC, SELECT, SPLICE); sorting and merging with larger PD and ZD fields; easier migration from other sort products, and more.

For complete details on these new features, see my "User Guide for DFSORT PTFs UK90007 and UK90006 (sortpeug)" paper at:

My pleasure. It's great to get paid for something I love to do. icon_biggrin.gif

I'm glad I can finally talk about the new functions after biting my tongue for the last few months.
