​True. I should have mentioned that. I have become somewhat leery of
mentioning "non statndard" software due to the number of times I've read
people say "management does not allow installation of unapproved software
(such as ...) and getting it approved is simply too much work". So I now
try to stay with software that is "built in" to z/OS.​
