z/VSE 5.2: Delete the VSE/POWER SLI member after reading

Today I will briefly describe another enhancement that we provide with z/VSE 5.2. This time it's a VSE/POWER enhancement.
With the "* $$ SLI" statement (SLI = Source Library Inclusion) you may include the content of VSE/AF or VSE/ICCF library member into a VSE/POWER job stream. The content of the library member will be included at the point VSE/POWER finds the "* $$ SLI" statement, when the spooled job is executed.
With z/VSE 5.2 it is possible to request, that the VSE/AF library member is deleted after its content is included into the VSE/POWER job stream. It may be requested by the new SLI keyword "DEL= YES" (delete after inclusion) or "DEL=NO" (do not delete = default.). The DEL keyword is not allowed for nested SLI statements.
The new SLI keyword will be described in the VSE/POWER Administration and Operation book on our documentation web page. The book update for z/VSE 5.2 will be there soon. I will keep you posted. You will fínd it here.
