In the 7.1 release, the Work with Job (WRKJOB) command was enhanced; you can determine this by going to the CL Command Finder and take the option to display “All changed commands.” The Knowledge Center will show you a list of changed commands and you can read the documentation on the command. Of course, there’s a slight problem in that commands are not change-flagged, so you cannot actually see what changed. You need to compare the command documentation with that of the prior release to figure out exactly what has changed. IBM finally started change flagging commands with the 7.4 release.
