Mmm Sessions playback
"Hi

I just found out that the May Mainframe Madness recorded sessions will be a=
vailable for playback until the end of June 2010.
I think that is a useful snippet of information worthy of posting here.

I'm guessing that they will be unavailable after that.
Catch-them-if-you-can. (Do you see what I did there?)

I also agree with Chris that the TUNE INDEX session is very good.

INPLEN not documented in the manual
"Hello All:



For the assembly of #UCFBTCH there is a parameter called INPLEN where you
can specify the columns for input parameters. Last night I upgraded an
account from 15.0 to 17.0 SP1 and the UCFBATCH program was failing because
of sequence number in columns 73 thru 80.



I searched the manuals first and could not find anything; by chance I looked
at the macro and saw the INPLEN parameter which defaulted to 80.



I added INPLEN to the assembly with INPLEN=72 and that corrected the
problem.
