SORTDBF -- Sort Data Base File - Front End to OPNQRYF
The Sort Data Base File command command provides a front end to OPNQRYF and a sort. The sort is done using an API instead of the OPNQRYF sort. Three significant advantages exist 1) Selection can be specified using a 'list parameter' 2) The API sort is faster than the OPNQRYF sort in many cases 3) Since an actual file is created, any utility like function can be used on the sorted data.
