My PROFILE XEDIT sets PF19, PF20 and PF21 to LAB)

MODEL
Enter MODEL in XEDIT's command line when editing a REXX EXEC, and you get a menu with various code sections you can insert. For example: how to use CMS Workunits, or a subroutine to call when you want to ACCESS an SFS dir: it will return the new fmode if it was not ACCESSed yet, or the existing fmode. Etc.
