Hercules turn key mvs

Postby Vinayak » Mon Mar 22, 2010 11:07 pm

hi all,
i have installed turnkey mvs 3.8 in my laptop and i am using RPF. usig this i can create PDS and members and i can code cobol programs and JCL, but i dont know how to compile cobol and submit jcl in mvs 3.8. I tried to search blogs and search engines, but i am not finding the answer, nowhere a proper procedure is given.
i tried writing a compile jcl, but its not working ( mvs 3.8 not recongnizes the compile utilities ). Please tell me if anyone knows this process or any link where i can find proper material. i m not using Hercules 390, i am using turn key mvs.

thanking you.
Vinayak

The Hercules home page has a link to Compilers for MVS -- the compilers are not part of the actual operating system and hence are not installed as part of Hercules. You must install them separately, although work has been done to simplify the process for you.

thank you all for your replies.. i m working on compiling a cobol program.

I have one more doubt.. in which i need help..

How and where to see the output after submiiting the JCL while working in RPF...

I tried the Output processor option 3.6.. but always it when i try to view output it says.. NO HELD OUTPUT

Please give me some instructions to view output of my JCL's..

I do not feel confortable myself looking at output thru RPF or QUE
just put the sysouts in a class which is spooled and use any PC tool
to browse the file associated to the emulated printer
