REXX stored procedures in V6

REXX stored procedures in V6
I'm submitting these questions to DB2 listproc because I believe the answers will be useful for all V6 installations that want to use REXX stored procedures.

I have UQ35973 applied to enable REXX stored procedures to function in V6.
I can CREATE a PROCEDURE with language REXX.

BUT...

I have no documentation for how to use REXX stored procedures. Specifically,

1) What DDNAME should be added to SPAS address space in order for SPAS to find the procedure?

2) Are there some working samples that I can consult as research?

3) What is the meaning of the 11/4/1999 entry in the PSP for V6 that references FMID JDB661H ? When I tried to order this function, IBM level 1 comes up with nothing that can be ordered.

Joe,

Have you checked the DB2 for OS/390 REXX Language Support manual available
on the web?
There's a sample in the appendix and set up instructions.
You can download from:
