In real time we won't go for PL1 wise sort Since there are lot of power full sort utillities there(Syncsort,Ibmsort....).
If you want explicitly sort in PL1 use array and try your own logic to sort them based on your requirement.

Since PL/1 is not COBOL, why on earth would you even THINK you can use a COBOL-like sort in PL/1? Read the manual and use the PL/1 sort.

The sort you use in COBOL with the sort verb is system default sort package, I would think the same would be true for PL/1.

Hi Enrico,

I like to read that just in the middle of my holidays deep inside the Pyrenees between France and Spain.

Keep going
