Have you ever had trouble locating a file you created?
But you cannot find it.
ICD Group's W?LDC*RDS allows you to locate your files using both wildcarded filenames and file characteristics. And it allows you to do much more.
With W?LDC*RDS you can:
Our simple additions to CANDE's LFILES command make it a more powerful File Finder. And our changes follow the LFILES command format.
A few examples will give you an idea of the flexibility and power of our additions.
Just remember for these examples that the file attributes you want to see and our options are recognized after the appearance of the colon (:).
Use the well-known * and ? wildcard characters in file names
|LFILES SYMB*/C?BOL*||matches SYMBOL/COBOL74 , SYMBOL/COBOL85, etc.|
|LFILES WC/* : CREATIONDATE GEQ 10/23/2005||matches files in the WC/= directory created on or after 10/23/2005|
|LFILES WC/* : CREATIONDATE GEQ TODAY - 2||matches files in the WC/= directory created in the last 2 days|
|LFILES WC/* : FILEKIND = SYMBOL||matches COBOL74SYMBOL, ALGOLSYMBOL, NEWPSYMBOL, etc.|
|LFILES SYMB*/COB* : REMOVE||After each match W?LDC*RDS asks for the OK to remove the file|
|LFILES SYMB*/COB* : WFL FILENAME JOB/MYWFLDECK|
|LFILES (PROD*)SYMB*/COB* ON WORK*|
A group of characters between brackets () matches a single occurrence of any of the characters
|LFILES SYMBOL/C0BOL||matches SYMBOL/COBOL68, SYMBOL/COBOL74, SYMBOL/COBOL85, etc.|
