Congratulations Frank. For over 20 years you were my go to SORT expert, first as an IBMer and later with DSSI in Morgan Hill. Always hoped I could meet you since I worked so close to SVL nee STL. Actually worked at SVL a couple of years ago on contract.

It was always so amazing how you would answer questions so quickly and thoroughly on so many forums and still have time to develop some of IBM's best software.....

We will miss you.....

Happy retirement Frank.
Your DFSORT-Documentations like "Beyond Sorting" or your posts in the ibmmainframeforum have alway helped us quite well in making quick solutions for complex problems which worked perfectly.
As I am new to mainframes (since beginning of 2011) I was lucky to have all the help!

Thank you for everything.

Kind Regards,

Oliver

From the time i joined this forum way back in 2009, i remember this name Frank and the PDF SORT TRICK, which helped me a lot. Also i must thank you for taking time and forwarding the PDFs which i was not able to download from the IBM library.

Please accept Congratulations and Best Wish from this boy who is just 10% of Your experience (i am not mentioning the knowledge).
:)

We will miss You in this forum!
Cheers,
Gokul
