EditMacro Zvars set on a SUBMIT?

Postby Steve Coalbran » Wed Oct 03, 2018 2:24 pm

I wondered if there was some undocumented Zvars set for the JOB & JES numbers after a SUBMIT command is issued.
I can get the info but it's a bit messy to go straight to the TSO commands. I want to do a load of stuff in a macro and then issue SUB NX.
To do this in TSO (this is executed in VIEW in batch ISPF run under TWS)... I need to have the file allocated to DD SCANWORK...
dsi = LISTDSI("SCANWORK FILE")      
"EXCLUDE '//*' 1 ALL "              
"DELETE X ALL "                    
CALL MSG "ON"                      
CALL OUTTRAP "O."                  
ADDRESS TSO "SUBMIT '"sysdsname"' "
CALL OUTTRAP "OFF"                  
CALL MSG "OFF"                      
PARSE VAR o.1 . jobjes .  
while I was hoping to
"EXCLUDE '//*' 1 ALL "  
"SUB NX "
jobjes = zjsubjob"("zjsubjes")"
;) Optimistic?!
I searchd the ISPF EDIT manual but found no references.

here is the link to a topic with a pretty useful tool I wrote a few( aka many ) years ago

http://ibmmainframes.com/about59657.html

it collects all the rexx variable available at the time of the call

( it helped me to debug an error in the rexx/sdsf interface
the docs had variables names different from the ones used in the code )

No undocumented ZVARs as far as I can tell from testing a similar edit macro. I used the REXXGBLV program from CBTTAPE.ORG file 669 to list all variables after the submit.

These users thanked the author willy jensen for the post:

Thanks Willy, never used a CBT tool as there's a problem downloading stuff here at my bank. :cry:

I think you should use OUTTRAP to trap the job number.

ISREDIT SUBMIT is not trappable. A different approach could be to use the SDSF API to locate the job after submit. But this is also rather clumsy.

Thanks Enrico,
I uploaded the code and tried to assemble it using plain ISPF 4.1. I haven't done this for decades!
It ends RC 8. It doesn't seem to understand the Rn-Rnn register refs or the $ sign anywhere. Here's just the top of the listing?...

I am guessing that your libraries when you assemble resolve these somehow. I also guess that the $ should be some other character in CP 278?

I do not think so... the error show up already in the first statement
                                    1 TITLE 'RXVARS  -  RETURN THE NAMES OF TH
** ASMA141E Bad character in operation code - '
RXVARS                          
 


probably all the back and forth between different environments scrambled the formatting

the TITLE was considered as a label and 'RXVARS as the opcode

anyway all that is needed is in the topic I linked, the source of the main and the macros

I will try to make an xmit file and post an idtf binary file not corrupted by cut and paste
