PTF UK90025 for z/OS DFSORT V1R10 and PTF UK90026 for z/OS DFSORT V1R12 (Oct, 2010) provide important enhancements to DFSORT and DFSORT's ICETOOL for resizing records (RESIZE operator); updating the trailer record (IFTRAIL); processing subsets (ACCEPT); translation of ASCII to EBCDIC (TRAN=ATOE), EBCDIC to ASCII (TRAN=ETOA), EBCDIC hex to binary (TRAN=UNHEX), and more; date field arithmetic (ADDDAYS, ADDMONS, ADDYEARS, SUBDAYS, SUBMONS, SUBYEARS, DATEDIFF, NEXTDday, PREVDday, LASTDAYW, LASTDAYM, LASTDAYQ and LASTDAYY); timestamp constant with microseconds (DATE5); group functions (KEYBEGIN); use of SET and PROC symbols in control statements (JPn"string" in EXEC PARM); more information in reports; larger fields; easier migration from other sort products, and more.

For complete details on these new features, see my "User Guide for DFSORT PTFs UK90025 and UK90026" paper (sortugph.pdf) at:
