RPG pgm to clean-up old files in the IFS Published by: Chris Proctor on 11 Oct 2012 view comments(11)

Good morning. We're trying to clean-up our IFS and the users have said that they only need a 60 day retention period, so now I have to come up with an application to look at multiple folders in QDLS and delete files that are older than 60 days.

I've heard there is an API that I can use to read the files within a folder. I don't know what it is or if it will give me the creation date of the file so that I can perform an UNLINK for it.

Does anyone know what the API is called and if it would provide me with this info?
