Database Output from CL
June 7, 2006 Hey, Ted
I know that IBM added a lot of new programming features to CL in the past two releases. However, one of the features I’ve been hoping for–the ability to do output operations to database files–doesn’t appear to be among them. Please tell me that I’m wrong and that there really is a way to update a database record within a CL program.
You’re right in thinking that IBM has not added CL commands to write, delete, and update database records, David, but that does not mean that there is no way to update a record in a database file.
