Specify the parameters in the syntax order shown above.
|RETCODE||[O,i,r] The Model 204 return code is the required first parameter. The code is a binary integer value.|
|SET_QUAL||[I,c,r] The set qualifier is required for specifying the record set or list whose records will be released. Specify the set qualifier as a character string using either one of the following formats:
[IN label | ON [LIST] listname]
label is the name of a saved IFFIND, IFFNDX, IFFWOL, IFFAC, IFSORT, IFFDV, or IFSRTV compilation from a previously compiled call.
listname specifies the name of a list that contains the found set.
Use the IFRELR call to explicitly release a single found set of records.
If you issue an IFRELR call on a sorted set, Model 204 frees the records in the scratch file. If you issue an IFRELR call on a list, Model 204 performs a Clear List function. See the IFCLST (Clear List) call.
The IFRELR call is the equivalent of the Release Records statement in SOUL in the host language multiple cursor environment.
