Hi Guys,

May I know the difference between SYNCSORT and DFSORT? Which one is advantagous and in what way it is advantageous? Do either of the two should be bought seperately? Or, are both of them IBM's product that U dont need to pay extra money?
Please let me know...

Reg,
Srinath.

DFSORT is IBM's sort product. Syncsort is Syncsort, Inc's sort product. CA-Sort is CA's sort product. You need a license for the appropriate product to use it. The products are not free.

DFSORT includes the fully documented, fully supported ICETOOL utility as well as ICEGENER.

If you or anyone else on this board would like some documents prepared by the DFSORT Team that describe what we see as the advantages of DFSORT over Syncsort, as well as considersations for migrating from Syncsort to DFSORT, send me an e-mail offline (yaeger@us.ibm.com). Please put "DFSORT" somewere in your Subject line to catch my attention.
