"On your system", as you said, versus in the rest of the programming world, where a programmer works for a manager, who works for another manager, who reports to a committee, who reports to the CEO, who gets funded by sometimes not so understanding money guys.
Rex we don't have the luxury of being in the decision chair to make such changes :) That's the world. In addition to the non-hot-dog approach of actually testing your changes... on three hundred programs, or three thousand. -----Original Message----- From: Rex Gozar <rgo...@gmail.com> To: dgreen <dgr...@dagconsulting.com>; U2 Users List <firstname.lastname@example.org> Sent: Tue, Mar 27, 2012 12:30 pm Subject: Re: [U2] Detecting idle time in INPUT statement. It does not matter if a system is old or not, you gotta keep it up to ate. "Maintenance programming" means adding LOCKED clauses that hould have been there in the first place. I doubt it would take more han a few hours; probably less time than writing and debugging some ff-the-wall input timer routine. There probably aren't that many ritical READU's. On my system, for the number of programs I have in he system, I only have a third as many READU's. ex ______________________________________________ 2-Users mailing list 2-us...@listserver.u2ug.org ttp://listserver.u2ug.org/mailman/listinfo/u2-users _______________________________________________ U2-Users mailing list U2-Users@listserver.u2ug.org http://listserver.u2ug.org/mailman/listinfo/u2-users
