Hi ,
I am going to read a SYSIN parm file,with in a loop.Scenario is like this,
I am reading theSYSIN parm file,when i read the 4 th record it is satisfying my condition,then control is coming out of the loop.Next time i am reading the parm file,At that time i am expecting to read the first record again.But when i enter into the loop again my control is going to the 5 th record onwards.Can i read the SYSIN file from the first record?Like a PS file can i close and open the SYSIN parm file ,so that i can read from the first record?

SYSIN is only for instream. it is not possible to read twice.

if you want you can read and store in an array and then process the array. multiple times.

or

use another dd. and work as a seq file.

yogi.47eie,

Yes, you can, treat it as any other file, use ?SELECT?, ?FD?, ?OPEN/CLODE?.

Code:

FILE-CONTROL.                                         
                                                     
    SELECT SYSIN-FILE                                 
    ASSIGN TO SYSIN.                                 
                                                     
DATA DIVISION.                                       
FILE SECTION.                                         
FD  SYSIN-FILE                                       
    LABEL RECORDS STANDARD                           
    BLOCK CONTAINS 0 RECORDS.                         
01  SYSIN-REC                PIC X(80).               
                                                     
WORKING-STORAGE SECTION.                             
                                                     
LINKAGE SECTION.                                     
                                                     
PROCEDURE DIVISION.                                   
                                                     
PROGRAM-START.                                 
                                               
    OPEN INPUT SYSIN-FILE.                     
                                               
    PERFORM 4 TIMES                             
        READ SYSIN-FILE                         
        DISPLAY SYSIN-REC                       
    END-PERFORM.                               
                                               
    CLOSE SYSIN-FILE.                           
                                               
    OPEN INPUT SYSIN-FILE.                     
                                               
    PERFORM 4 TIMES                             
        READ SYSIN-FILE                         
        DISPLAY SYSIN-REC                       
    END-PERFORM.                               
                                               
    CLOSE SYSIN-FILE.                           

    GOBACK.


JCL
Code:

//JS00100  EXEC PGM=#TEST                         
//STEPLIB  DD DSN=YOUR.PDS.LOADLIB,DISP=SHR
//SYSIN    DD *                                   
RECORD 1                                           
RECORD 2                                           
RECORD 3                                           
RECORD 4                                           
RECORD 5                                           
RECORD 6                                           
RECORD 7                                           
RECORD 8                                           
/*                                                 
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*                             
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*


Results

Code:

.SARPAGE 4                   
.                           
.RECORD 1                   
.RECORD 2                   
.RECORD 3                   
.RECORD 4                   
.RECORD 1                   
.RECORD 2                   
.RECORD 3                   
.RECORD 4
