Help in listing PROCs.

Postby dafpadilla » Wed Apr 03, 2013 10:07 pm

I need to list the PROCs used by a number of JCL members in a Partitioned Data set - is there any way to automate this?

I have been trying the IEBCOPY utility but it only gives me an Unloaded Sequential Dataset - which I don't know how to use.
I guess what would help me a lot is if anybody can teach me how to convert a Partitioned Dataset into a Sequential Dataset that I could probably use as input for my sort utility?

Thank you.

Enrico's solution will list every member in the PDS, which I'm not sure is the topic starter's intent.

I'm not sure the following example is the intent, either, but ...
//A       EXEC PGM=IEBPTPCH
//SYSPRINT DD  SYSOUT=*
//SYSUT1   DD  DISP=SHR,DSN=MYID.CNTL
//SYSUT2   DD  SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN    DD  *
 PRINT TYPORG=PO,MAXFLDS=20,MAXNAME=20
 MEMBER NAME=(JOBCARD)
 RECORD FIELD=(80,1,,21)
 MEMBER NAME=(STEPLIB)
 RECORD FIELD=(80,1,,21)
 MEMBER NAME=(JOBLIB)
 RECORD FIELD=(80,1,,21)
In nearly 45 years, when I've used IEBPTPCH fairly often, it has always been to print all the members. I had to go to the manual to find out how to select members, and, in my opinion, the solution turned out to be depressingly kludgy.

Enrico is correct, but I would use PUNCH rather than PRINT, and direct the SYSUT2 DD statement to disk rather than SYSOUT.
