NONAMES -- Avoid NAMEFIND lookup for SFS administrative commands

From: Rob van der Heij

SFS commands feature a lookup from the user's NAMES file that can not be disabled by an option on the command. When SFS commands are issued by a program, such a lookup is normally unwanted.

The NONAMES program runs a CMS command with the NAMEFIND nickname resolution disarmed, allowing the careful programmer to write robust code (like the "address command" in REXX to avoid unintended execution of a REXX program instead of the command).

In addition to the assembler source, a complete MODULE is provided for those who don't have the High Level Assembler to build it.
