Also, there were some TSO commands like ACCOUNT and OPERATOR that worked better with CLIST. Maybe even the TSO TEST command was better with CLIST.
Though, if I understand it right:
RACF commands have superseded the ACCOUNT command.
And CONSOLE has superseded the OPERATOR command.
And I am pretty sure RDz is much better than TSO TEST.
TSOLIB - I run a TSOLIB command in a small CLIST just after LOGON, but there is nothing in the CLIST that depends on TSO commands in the new libraries. I do write CLISTs that use programs and commands in the TSOLIB libraries.
OPERATOR and its subcommands run badly in CLIST too.
I've never tried TSO TEST in a CLIST except to start a debug session and enter AT commands, but I wouldn't bet it would work well beyond that.
I've never had RDz.
I don't know how long it's been since I used ACCOUNT! I don't think I ever tried running it in a CLIST. I have run RACF and other commands in CLISTs used to create a new userid.
