TSO Clist commands

Postby 20sam13 » Wed May 15, 2013 10:46 pm

By any chance, does anyone have some "slick" TSO/z-OS command line tools I can send to my mainframe group to possible inclusion in our other clist tools?

Such as:

BR14 - will scan thru the JCL member being edited and add a //step00 exec pgm=iefbr14 for all of the DSNs with a disp of (new, catlg, delete), mod, old - and other valid combinations?

PARAON - will scan thru a cobol program being edited and insert a display of the paragraph name just below the paragraph name?

PARAOFF - will scan thru and find those displays and remove them.

BCSR - will open a DSN in browse, if the cursor is placed on the line with the DSN=
ECSR - will open a DSN in edit, if the cursor is placed on the line with the DSN=

FAB - will open fileaid in browse mode with the PDS name where FAB is entered immediately to the left of the name in a DSN list.
FAE - will open fileaid in edit mode with the PDS name where FAE is entered immediately to the left of the name in a DSN list.

Plus other very useful shortcuts.

Before someone "snarks" at the request, we have a few commands, but the systems people have not obtained/created very many of them for use.

The 2nd part of the question is, how does one setup the "system" clists and any I may write myself to not require the TSO be typed before the clist name?

Thanks for all your help!!

then You should learn to live without them :mrgreen:

why not search yourself what is available at http://www.cbttape.org ???

or google for REXX TSO TOOLS ... the search will return quite a few links with lots of useful info

or for Mark Zelden, Lionel B. Dyck, Doug Nadel, Gilbert Saint Flour,
cheers

Hello,

If you intend to pursue this, suggest you consider REXX instead of Clist . . .
Hope this helps,

My mistake in terminology. Rexx Exec's is the correct terminology, just always knew them as "Clist's".

You'll want to look at the topic "Using command tables to define commands" in the z/OS ISPF User's Guide, Vol. I.

Hello,

Rexx Exec's is the correct terminology, just always knew them as "Clist's".
It is not just a matter of terminology.

They are completely different languages with very different syntaxes.
Hope this helps,
