You might be able to set the test version you want in a global record
field, then link to RHDCUF00 as shown in the System Tasks manual...

Then you could interrogate the global element anywhere within the
thread.. Just an idea, I've no done it.

From the Manual:
5.1.4 Invoking DCUF commands from programs

Link to RHDCUF00: You can invoke all SET and SHOW DCUF commands from
programs. A program invokes a DCUF command by linking to the program
invoked by the DCUF tasks. This program is (unless changed on site by
the
database administrator) RHDCUF00 (the name ends with two zeros).

Required parameters: The calling program allocates storage for two
parameters, INREC and OUTREC:

INREC contains the command, prefixed by a halfword with the length
of
the command.

OUTREC is a piece of storage prefixed by information such as the
return code and output handling.

Hi,

I have a situation where I use the command ""DCUF SET TEST 9924"" for the
purpose of testing developer dialogs. Does anyone know of a way to
capture
that test version number and use it within a dialog for decision making?
Within the testing environment, I also use the command ""DCUF SET DBNAME
DBTESTA"" and I can capture it with the statement MOVE DB-NAME TO
WORK-REC-FIELD. I just haven't found a way to capture the test version
number. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Re: Release 16 question
"John,

We are still at 14.1 and, as such, are running everything below the bar. We plan to look at moving some areas above the bar during 16.0 conversion, at least initially, until we can get our hands around the situational longneck. I suspect that by our second attempt, all areas will slowly slide under the bar and stop running altogether, even though there may be some crawling. Management will surely try to lift our spirits above the bar again but I anticipate an utter collapse to our previously inebriated condition, with applications holding on to the rail (now there's a new IBM term for ya - the level of low memory just large enough to load the abend handler) while operating system dsects spin 'round the room.

Subject: Release 16 question

As I understand it, with ZOS there are 3 distinct areas of the OS, below
the line (0 to 16 M, above the line but below the bar (16M to 96M), and
above the bar (above 96M). My current client is installing a Z800
machine and, again, as I understand it, the Z800 machine has the
architecture to exploit the space 'above the bar'. Does IDMS rel 16 use
the 'above the bar' space, and, if so, how? Has anybody been able to
exploit this vast area? And, if so, have you seen any significant
performance improvements due to moving things 'above the bar'?

I am asking because my client is currently running rel 15 SP3 and had
asked me whether they should go to rel 15 SP6 or to rel 16. I had
recommended SP6 then found out about the new machine and wondered if
there were significant reasons, given the new architecture, to change my
recommendation.

Thank you in advance for your responses.

John Wheeler
