This section provides examples of application programs that use CA IDMS/DC Sort. Each example is presented in four formats -- COBOL, Assembler, PLI, andCA ADS. The selection screens that appear when the USER parameter is selected in the SETSORT statement are also illustrated.
CA IDMS/DC Sort can be used in several ways. It can:
  • Perform a single sort
  • Perform multiple sorts
  • Use predefined criteria
  • Use criteria set by the user at runtime
