You are the second person in this thread to suggest a PC solution. If you had been aware of almost anything you'd know this forum is to do with IBM mainframes, which don't have a DOS prompt. Please make suggestions relevant to what is asked and the environment of IBM mainframes.

the first one was a spammer, the second is a troll :mrgreen:
When I tell somebody to RTFM or STFW I usually have the page open in another tab/window of my browser,
so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort
