DFSORT New Function PTFs

(Originally posted 2006-04-20.)

As many of you know I like to beta DFSORT function PTFs. About once a year a new set of functions appears, many in direct response to customer requirements. Occasionally some of the enhancements are at my suggestion. 🙂

Yesterday PTFs UK90006 and UK90007 became available. (Being UK based it’s nice to see PTF numbers beginning with UK but I read no significance into this.) 🙂

You can read the user guide here.

I’m not going to duplicate what that document says here. But the enhancements are rather pleasing. What I will do, occasionally, is post examples of things that are easy to overlook in this announcement. As someone who’s played with the code over the past six months I think I’m well placed to do this.

And I expect Frank Yaeger (the DFSORT function developer) to be all over the web with this stuff shortly.
