Use the LMCOMP ISPF Library Management service. Otherwise, run a normal IEBCOPY COMPRESS.

Reply with quote

hi


i tried to compress the PDS with the following code



/* REXX */
"ISPEXEC LMINIT DATAID(ID) DATASET('PDS') ENQ(EXCLU)"

"ISPEXEC LMCOMP DATAID(ID)"
"FREE DS('PDS')"


But the pds did not get compressed.
Is the above code is valid for the compression?

It worked for me when coded properly:

Code:

/* REXX */                                                   
"ISPEXEC LMINIT DATAID(ID) DATASET('PDS') ENQ(EXCLU)"     
"ISPEXEC LMCOMP DATAID("ID")"                               
"ISPEXEC LMFREE DATAID("ID")"
