I then sent FILE268.XMI to a mainframe, and used the RECEIVE (RECEIVE INDATASET(FILE268.XMI) command to extract its contents. This creates a source type PDS; you will discover its name when you receive it.
Even by CBT standards the documentation in the source PDS is lousy. Its very verbose and poorly organized. You assemble one large member in the PDS, RXVSAM, and use the binder to create a load module from the object code. Fortunately there are no unusual macro libraries for the assembly, or SYSLIBs for the link edit step. The assembly requires both SYS1.MODGEN and SYS1.MACLIB. You then make this load module library available to your TSO session using the TSOLIB command as Mr, Prins suggested, or if you run TSO in batch you can use STEPLIB, again as Mr. Prins suggested.
Good luck with it.

RXVSAM represents a culmination of over 20 years of development and refinement of a certain s370 assembler VSAM io handler I built in the 80s. After years of refinement and enhancements, an assembly "stub" was created called RXVSAM to allow a easy to use interface between REXX and the underlying IO handler, primarily because I needed a method to create variable length records in a dataset. Thus, RXVSAM was born. This software is only found on sourceforge.net and is not available on the CBT tape for several reasons, but primarily to take advantage of SVN for version control and utilize the greater visibility that Sourceforge offers. If you find this software useful, please consider a donation! Steven W. Scott

I have already written some programs which use REPRO to copy vsam into PS and then use it.
But this process is too long and consumes lot of time.
