Delete lines using ISREDIT - Help needed.

Postby Viswanathchandru » Fri Jan 04, 2013 12:32 am

Dear all,

I was trying this piece of code(below) and I was not able to delete the particular lines as expected. And one more thing is even though I have coded "ISREDIT SAVE" "ISREDIT END" I need to press f3 for the file to get saved. Can anyone one suggest me where do I go wrong. Apologize if my thoughts are wrong.


/* REXX */                                 
"ISPEXEC EDIT DATASET('Z114VCT.DUMMY')"     
ADDRESS TSO                                 
"ISREDIT DELETE 1 10"                               
"ISREDIT SAVE"                             
"ISREDIT END"                               



Regards,
Viswa

For a start you have not defined it as a macro. There is no macro statement.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

The correct way to call ISPEXEC MACRO services are
/* REXX */                                 
"ISPEXEC EDIT DATASET('Z114VCT.DUMMY') MACRO(dellines)"     
EXIT CODE(&LASTCC)
 

then your MACO (dellines) for example can consist of
ISREDIT MACRO
ISREDIT DELETE 1 10                               
ISREDIT SAVE                             
ISREDIT END 


I have not testing the code for syntax but the basics are there.

Think of ""ISPEXEC EDIT ... " as an external subroutine. When a rexx program calls an external subroutine, the rexx program is suspended until the subroutine ends. Only when the subroutine ends does the next rexx statement get executed. And that is why your initial program could not work.
