Replicate NetMaster Netview Emulation in OPS/MVS.  In many cases, when migrating from system automation written in base Netview, there are functions which have no equivalent mapping to OPS/MVS functions.  CA NetMaster provides an emulation of Netview's REXX inplementation.  It would be beneficial to provide comparable emulation to the OPS/MVS product.  Both implementations use the GRexx so I'm hoping that porting the Netview emulation would not be overly difficult.

The main functionality that would be greatly simplified by porting the Netview rexx emulation to OPS/MVS would be the migration of Netview Rexx PIPE instructions.  While in many cases, OPS/REXX is able to leverage its efficiency to negate any loss of efficiency by recoding PIPE instructions into OPS/REXX, this is a time consuming process.  Enabling PIPE instruction support within OPS/REXX would be the primary benefit.
