Just curious - are there any plans to modify DFSORT to allow for a user exit E15/35 to be written in Rexx? I used a competitor sort product years ago and it allows this.

Rexx would probably not be as efficient as a COBOL program but has the advantage of fast and east coding (just like DFSORT statements). For small input files it should be ok.

Jerryte,

DFSORT does NOT support REXX exits. We will add this to our long list of future enhancements.

Thanks

Excellent idea. If the exit support allows the Rexx program to issue DSNREXX calls I will be ecstatic. icon_cool.gif
