Include text description in WRKHDWRSC output to *OUTFILE
When directing the output from WRKHDWRSC to *PRINT, it includes the text description of the resources. However, directing the output to *OUTFILE does not include text description for any resource. I would like you make the *OUTFILE output similar to the *PRINT output by including text descriptions for the resources.
Including a text description in the WRKHDWRSC *OUTFILE output enables the end user to use SQL to retrieve and document the IBM i environment. Today, we need to parse the spooled output to get the text description of hardware resources.
