Set Wide Screen Mode (27x132) as the Default Option or (preferrably) the only option for ACS 5250 Configuration

When end-users setup their devices they don't have 20 to 40 years experience with *DS3 and *DS4 mode. They're not sure what 27x132 means. Since is it 2022 and not 1982, it would be better to default to 27x132 for ACS 5250 Display Configurations. I...

Alternative open source packages in ACS

All the PASE packages are delivered by YUM - and it works great. The ACS interface even makes installation much easier. However not all open source is available in YUM. It will be rather useful to have a "one-stop-shop" for all kind of open source...

A "copy special" option within Run SQL Scripts which will copy your selection as a single line

This would be useful for copying a query from Run SQL Scripts and pasting into a CL program RUNSQLSTM command for example. The query formatting in Run SQL Scripts is very useful for working with the query, but sometimes we need to condense the que...

Example: I am running a scan against the entire IFS for largest files. It takes 17-18 minutes or so to run. I can't ask for more than 100 results until after the 17-18 minutes. If I don't sit and watch it run, it closes the results before I can re...
