What is CL?
Control language (CL) is the primary interface to the operating system.
CL can be used at the same time by users at different workstations, in batch and interactive jobs and in CL programs and procedures.
Who uses CL Commands?
CL commands are typically used by programmers, IT managers, and system administrators.
Through IBM i command menus, powerful command prompter tools, and online command help, nontechnical users can also use CL commands.
To use CL commands, you should have a general understanding of the IBM i operating system.
If you want to combine several CL commands together to create a CL program, some background in programming is helpful.
