Levitz Furniture’s WRKDBF Utility: Sofa, So Good!
AS/400 programmers working for Levitz Furniture Corp. developed a file editor for internal use designed to allow them to easily maintain and display records in AS/400 database files. They dubbed it WRKDBF, and they liked it so much that they decided to make it available as freeware.
Now there’s a new release—WRKDBF 9.02.09—that enhances a developer’s ability to test, debug and maintain database files.
Enhancements include:SQL operations can be submitted to run in batch mode instead of just interactively;SQL operations can now be saved for use at a later time instead of completely recreating your SQL’s each time;Results of an SQL SELECT operation can now be directed to an *OUTFILE, if desired;SQL pattern comparisons “LIKE” and “NOT LIKE” can now be used to select records;And there is now support for “SST” (substring) and “CONCAT” (concatenated) fields.
If you’re interested, a description of the full set of the utility’s features is available on its Web site
along with the latest release download
. And the developers want to hear from you with comments/suggestions. Send them along to Bill Reger
at Levitz Furniture.
