gettin the content of a temporary file - SYS09240.T133551.**

Postby dohara » Fri Aug 28, 2009 5:12 pm

Hello

I use PDS datasets and the data in members are not in a readable format. In ISPF 3.4 i can issue a cmd - XRD - alongside the member and that copies the content into a temporary file in a readable format. I want to save the readable content of the temp file into my own dset but the temp file SYS09240.T133551.** is deleted when the XRD process terminates.
The XRD process itself is not readable either so can not check how it works or modify to print the readable content into my own library.

Can you suggest a way to get around the above please?


Thanks,
David

Hello,

Suggest you talk with the people who wrote or support the XRD process.
Hope this helps,

Hello Dick

Thanks for your reply.
I've managed to invoke XRD from rexx and capture the output. not the best one but it worked
