Seeking Namespace Advice (MVS OS/390 Mainframe Util.) - PERL Modules

    Default Seeking Namespace Advice (MVS OS/390 Mainframe Util.)

    I'm just about to finish up a module that someone might find useful.

    It emulates two utilities found on IBM Mainframes, IEBUPDTE and
    IEBPTPCH. For a general discussion, lets just say that these two utils
    are similar to tar/untar. I wrote them so that I can bundle local
    files to upload, and so that I can un-bundle files downloaded from the
    mainframe.

    If I were to start fresh, I'd like OS390::IEBUtils.


    (A bit of history: IBM's OS has gone through many names, the three
    most recent are 'MVS', 'OS/390', and 'z/OS', so it's a little tricky
    using the OS name as an identifier.)

    The two most closely related existing modules are MVS::VBFile and
    Convert::OS390.

    Your thoughts are appreciated. I've got a good bit of work in the
    modules, and don't want to gum up the works with an ineffective or
    misleading name.

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    I would be interested in this module.
    I think MVS::IEBUtils for the name would be a good idea, because the MVS
    already exists as a top level namespace.

    regards,
    Reinhard
