Customers of IBM's DFSORT product seem to come in two varieties: those who know about and use the many features of the product (often in ingenious ways) and those who only use the product in the most basic way. If you're in the latter group, you're missing out on the many productivity and performance features DFSORT has to offer. Here's your chance to learn how to go beyond sorting.

The SORTBYND paper highlights and shows examples of some of the features of DFSORT that can improve application performance and programmer productivity. Topics included are: JOINKEYS, ICEGENER, Multiple Output, ICETOOL, INCLUDE/OMIT Tests, Reformatting Features, OUTFIL Features, SMF, TOD and ETOD Date and Time Formats, Floating Sign Format, Free Form Formats, Product Connections, Symbols, National Language Support, Time-of-Day Controls, Continue or Terminate Controls, SAS Booster, BLDINDEX, Year 2000 Features, and Sources of Information. This paper reflects DFSORT features available as of October, 2010.
