Suppose there are 100 lines in a file and i want to delete only the
10th line in that file. Is that possible in JCL.
If yes , how is it possible.

Here's a DFSORT job that will do what you asked for. I assumed your input file has RECFM=FB and LRECL=80, but the job can be changed appropriately for other attributes.

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file (FB/80)
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file (FB/80)
//SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY
  INREC OVERLAY=(81:SEQNUM,8,ZD)
  OUTFIL OMIT=(81,8,ZD,EQ,+10),BUILD=(1,80)

You can now do this kind of thing quite easily using the new SUBSET operator of DFSORT's ICETOOL available with z/OS DFSORT V1R5 PTF UK90013 (July, 2008):

Code:

//S1   EXEC  PGM=ICETOOL
//TOOLMSG   DD  SYSOUT=*
//DFSMSG    DD  SYSOUT=*
//IN DD DSN=...  input file
//OUT DD DSN=...  output file
//TOOLIN DD *
SUBSET FROM(IN) TO(OUT) INPUT REMOVE RRN(10)
/*


For complete details on the new SUBSET function and the other new functions available with PTF UK90013, see:
