The problem is when we get an upgrade SAG could (and have) replace is PDA and we lose the redefines.
We have created a local copy to avoid this problem in the future, but what I would like is if the standard PDA (STPAPARM) has all the useful redefines so this data structure is self-documenting.
Anyone using the current PDA would have to dig deep to find the ISN of the record (RQ-CB-ISN), file no (RQ-CB-FILE-NO) and the session id (RQ-SESSION-ID), but looking at the PDA it’s not exactly obvious.
So please SAG if any of these fields contain meaning full sub components then please add all the relevant redefines in the PDA so the poor programmer can find them!
