Compare of data objects
Files of any file format; Library elements of any type; Jobvariables; All versions of elements in ascending sequence (history compare); Complete content of two libraries at level of the individual elements (library compare); All files/libraries whose names appear in two file lists created by CFS (list compare)
Connection handler
Multiple dialog sessions from one terminal; Command memory; Hardcopy function; Menu system for predefined connections; LOGGING-RESTORE: Recording and replaying of dialog sessions (format- and line-mode inputs) for automation; Comparison of an actual dialog with a recorded dialog (regression test); Simulation of recorded dialog sessions (training, demonstration); Replay of dialog sessions (e.g. UTM transactions) within a CFS batch process; Automatic $CONSOLE handling; Administration of VM2000 guest systems ($VMCONS)
Procedure language
All functions also available in DO- or ENTER-procedures; Automation of dioalog sessions; Use of CFS in productive applications and at BS2000 startup; Additional procedure statements and usage of CFS variables
Starting and monitoring of DO- and S-procedures as a batch process; Prompting oof the procedure parameters in a params mask; Automatic protocol display at the end of a job; Store content of params mask to reuse it; Monitoring also for jobs not started by CFS (free events)
Help system
Online help information with complete content of the user manual; Direct help access to an input field, a command or via menu; Integration of important BS2000 tables (DCAM return codes, interrupt weights, ...); Help also available as winhelp file
