Allow for search on File Names (src, dest) in Unix / Linux

This is a great functionality and already present in CD for Windows.

Can we please get the same functionality in Unix/Linux

How will this idea be used?

When needing to check if a certain file has transferred or even shows up in the logs it is painful to miss the functionality that is available in CD for windows.

    Thank you for the feedback. I'm wondering if you may be looking at an older copy of the documentation. The link below leads to the C:D UNIX v6.0 documentation where they are listed as valid parameters that can be used on UNIX.

    The manual says that this feature is available on windows but not under unix/linux.

    While the parameters sfile and dfile are available for CD Windows it says specifically in the manual at version 6.0 that "This parameter is not supported by Connect:Direct for UNIX."

    Thanks for taking into consideration to making it available in Unix

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I have reviewed it with my team and we believe it's already available in C:D UNIX v4.0 and newer.

    You can use the srcfile and destfile parameters with your select statistics command to filter for items that include specific file names. I've included a few examples below for guidance. If you require any assistance with them please feel free to open a case with our support team however. I'll need to decline this request since the capabilities already exist, but please don't hesitate to use it again if you run across other enhancements you think would be useful.

    Direct> sel stat srcfile=*text10k;

    Direct> sel stat detail destfile=*pshunix1.out;
