allow V7.4 BRMS to support ZLIB compression for SAVF saves on Power 10
the IBM i V7.4 and V7.5 versions of the SAVxxx command support DTACPR(*ZLIB), so there is no "good" reason that BRMS cannot support the same parameters. CALL PGM(QBRM/Q1AOLD) PARM(('PARMOVR') ('*ADD') ('SAVFDTACPR') ('*ZLIB')) '*ZLIB ' not valid f...
