Question:

How do we determine what release of CA Earl we are currently executing on our system?

Answer:

You can find out what release of CA Earl you are running by checking any Earl compile listing's banner (in DD SYSPRINT). The banner will have information in the following format.

        CA-EARL   r.r cccceerr                                      
                                                                    
   where: r.r     is the Earl release                                 
             cccc  is the Service Pack level identifier 
             ee     indicates free Earl Service (XE) or licensed CA Earl (EO) 
             rr      is the Earl release                                       

Examples:

CA-EARL   6.1 SP08XE61  <-- the XE61 indicates the free Earl Service release 6.1
                                         provided with CA Common Services  
  ...or...                                                                
                                                                          
CA-EARL   6.1 SP08EO61  <-- the EO61 indicates licensed CA Earl release 6.1
