Chapter 2. Basic Functions

2. Basic Functions

The Basic Operations and Work Management options in iSeries Navigator allow you to perform the same basic functions that you perform in a 5250 session: display and send messages, work with spool files and printers, and work with jobs and queues. These are the day-to-day commands that you issue without a second thought, and it is just as easy in Navigator.

Here, you start to see the benefits and the disadvantages of Navigator. Do not let the disadvantages dissuade you; they are far outweighed by the benefits. Navigator offers solutions to some annoyances, such as easily finding spool files or viewing reports in WYSIWIG as opposed to having blank lines removed; 5250 sessions still offer benefits in the speed of opening spool files and processing the same option for multiple items.
