The Question is:
I'm trying to find a utility which can be used to find which user has a
particular record locked within an RMS indexed file with little success. We
are using Synergy DBL and Powerhouse as our main development tools with a
little COBOL. I'm quite happy to
use either a pre written tool or write one, but to write one I could use some
examples of using the $GETLKI or $GETLKIW system services as I don't really
code in C and that seems to be the limit of the examples given.
The Answer is :
If all you are interested in learning about here is file contention
at a record level and you do not need nor want to build a correspondence
between records and locks, you can quite easily use the DECamds tool to
detect lock contention.
