Util: ACCOUNT-SAVE duplicates saving distributed files

Previous Release Behavior

When ACCOUNT-SAVE encounters a distributed file, it saves the whole distributed file as well as the part files separately.

Current Release Behavior

Only the part files are saved.

The jBASE distributed file stub is not saved because distributed files are implemented differently on other multi-value platforms. Therefore it will be necessary to reassemble the distributed file on the target system.


When a distributed file is created on jBASE, the dictionary of the distributed file is automatically set to not be saved by ACCOUNT-SAVE. If you wish for these files to saved then there are 2 options:

1) use the ACCOUNT-SAVE (O option to override the "no backup" flag

2) use jchmod +B on an individual file, e.g. jchmod +B TESTFILE]D
