The paste function name depends on how MVS/QuickRef was installed at
your site. If MVS/QuickRef was installed without using the ISPF libdef
facility, the paste function name should be ?PASTE. If MVS/QuickRef
was installed using the libdef facility, then the paste function name
should be QWPASTE. if you are not sure which name to use, first try
!PASTE and, if that does not work, then try QWPASTE.
If you will be doing a lot of pasting and are using a paste function name which is prefixed by an exclamation point (like ?PASTE), you can use the PDF EDIT command:
DEFINE XXXXX MACRO PGM
Where XXXXX is the paste function name without the exclamation point prefix to define XXXXX as a program form edit macro for the remainder of the edit session. When this is done, you can invoke the paste function without the exclamation point refix.
For example, if you are using ?PASTE as your paste function
name and you use the PDF EDIT command:
DEFINE PASTE MACRO PGM
then, for the rest of that edit session, you can use PASTE
(rather than ?PASTE) as your paste function name.
