1. It was already possible using some "simple" Rexx like:
/* REXX RXSTART Copyright YCOS Yves Colliard Software 2007-2010 */
/*----------------------------------------------------------------*/
/* RXSTART - Create many split screens */
/*----------------------------------------------------------------*/
/* REXX Tool */
/*================================================================*/
address ispexec
/* for every screen give command or option @ screen name */
sp.1="dslist ycos.clist@clist"
sp.2="dslist ycos.cntl@cntl"
sp.3="sd;st@sdsf"
sp.4="0@setit"
sp.5="3@utils"
opt=""
do i=1 while sp.i<>"SP."i
parse var sp.i cmd "@" nam
if sp.i="SP."i then opt=";BASE"
"SELECT PGM(ISPSTRT) PARM("cmd";SCRNAME "nam" PERM;SWAP"opt")"
end

 
2. Please also notice that the default maximum split screen number is 8! and in many DP centers still in use...
 
3. it could be a good idea to point out the usage of SCRNAME (also during an application start)
 
4. it could be a good idea to also make a reference to the =XALL command
 
Thanks for the good description of this new 2.1 function
