I am sorry but i didn't got your question. As far as I know Mastor Catalog is the list of datasets which we can see using option 3.4 in ISPF panel. I want the list of all datasets present there in 1 PS file. how can I go for it using Rexx?

Thank you for your help.

Probably you need to check here http://ibmmainframes.com/about20708.html

So once you receive the list for the qualifier you can write them to output file

You should define your requirements more. You can actually get what you want using the IDCAMS utility, so why Rexx?

Thank you all for your response. I have to write the program in Rexx as per my project requirement. I will go through links provided by you. If I will face any issue or if I can find the solution I will contact you people again.

Thanks again.

Hi Pandora,

i got small code from the link given by you.
/* REXX */
"ISPEXEC LMDINIT LISTID(idv) LEVEL(A*)"
Do Forever
"ISPEXEC LMDLIST LISTID("idv") OPTION(LIST) DATASET(dsvar)"
If rc = 0 Then Say "'"dsvar"'"
Else Leave
End
"ISPEXEC LMDLIST LISTID("idv") OPTION(FREE)"

Can you please explain me the use of DSVAR? I mean I am not getting the flow of code. Or can you please suggest me any book which is better for beginners.

Thank you.

You might look for another job whilst you're at it, since currently you have an incompetent moron of a team lead who assigns a unqualified person to do a redundant task...not a promising situation.

I have to write the program in Rexx as per my project requirement.

what kind of idiot/moron/(add as many as You want) project leader You got there...
assigning a task to somebody who does not have the skill to carry it along :evil:

Just pointing out that You are the innocent victim here

for the docs and resources

not the latest ones but more than enough to get You started ..

TSO/REXX
http://publibz.boulder.ibm.com/cgi-bin/ ... s/IKJ4BK90

ISPF
http://publibz.boulder.ibm.com/cgi-bin/ ... s/ISPZPM70

for the mother of all manuals ( IBM )
http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/z/os/zos/ ... index.html

and navigate to the bookshelves for Your zOS level

for an insight of IGGCSI00 usage and a GOOD example
see ...

 VIEW     SYS1.SAMPLIB                                       Row 00001 of 00004
 Command ===>                                                  Scroll ===> CSR
    Name     Prompt          Size    Created           Changed            ID
 . IGGCSILC
 . IGGCSIRX
 . IGGCSIVG
 . IGGCSIVS
   **End**


VIEW       SYS1.SAMPLIB(IGGCSIRX) - 01.00                  Columns 00001 00072
 Command ===>                                                  Scroll ===> CSR
 ****** ***************************** Top of Data ******************************
 000500 /* REXX */
 001000  /********************************************************************/
 001500  /*                                                                  */
 002000  /*       NAME: IGGCSIRX                                             */
 002500  /*DESCRIPTION: THIS REXX EXEC IS USED TO CALL THE CATALOG           */
 003000  /*             SEARCH INTERFACE.                                    */
 003500  /*      INPUT: FILTER KEY                                           */
 004000  /*     OUTPUT: DATA SETS NAMES AND VOLUMES                          */
 004062  /*                                                                  */


the above sample is working asis,
if it does not fit Your requirement is the best starting point to write Your own


the IGGCSI00 approach has the BIG advantage of not depending on ISPF facilities being available
cheers
