Using CLIST how to search & replac a string in PDS members

Postby Farhaan4mf » Wed Mar 12, 2014 7:07 pm

Hello !!
I need to use CLIST to find and replace a string (dataset names) with a new string inside the PDS members. I can not use REXX as my shop doesn't have it. So need to use CLIST to serve the purpose. Could anyone please help me with the CLIST code that will give the PDS with modified members (after replacing the old string with new one). I need to change around 800 jcl. If I get a CLIST code, it will minimize my effort substantially. Please help

Thanks in Advance !!

pretty silly remark ...
REXX has been integral part of TSO for about ... let' s say 30 years

look here for a tested MASS CHANGE ISPF application

http://ibmmainframes.com/about60794.html

but ... wouldn' t be simpler to ask Your peers or Your support
if something like FILEMGR/FILEAID is available

furthermore nobody will spend time on CLIST programming
