Reply with quote

Using IBM Personal Personal Computer Workstation Program. On the menu, I have Menu-List-Mode-Functions-Utilities-Help. My options List has 1 with a *(means not available). My MODE is the same. My ultimate gole is to be able to have it store my previous executed commands in the ISPF Command Shell.

Do you have any suggestions?

If i understood your question you are trying to get to TSO COMMAND line and menu does not have option. Then Try TSOCMD.

If you are trying to retrieve (get to) previously entered commands,
enter RETRIEVE on command line. Easy way is to put RETRIEVE in a PFKEY, have a PFKEY (say 12) mapped to RETRIEVE. So pressing PF12 key will bring back previously entered commands.

To do this, enter KEYS on command line and change mapping:

Code:


Key       Definition
F1 . . .  HELP     
F2 . . .  SPLIT     
F3 . . .  EXIT     
F4 . . .  JUMP     
F5 . . .           
F6 . . .           
F7 . . .  BACKWARD 
F8 . . .  FORWARD   
F9 . . .  SWAP     
F10  . .  ACTIONS   
F11  . .           
F12  . .  RETRIEVE 



Hope i anwered your question.

In our ISPF command screen it has about 10 lines to store the 10 previous used commands. All you have to do is click on the command line and change the ACIDS. My problem is that i'm new for one. Second nobody in the department can figure out why mine want save the commands. The options are not available on the menu.


Thanks,
Ty

Ok, Got it now.

Looks like command line stores last 10 commands( please note all commands are not stored).

From manual:
"The ISPF Command Shell panel has a saved command area (the bottom portion of the screen) that contains a list of up to 10 commands that you have saved; see Figure 270 for an example. These commands are point-and-shoot fields. What happens when you select a command depends on the mode you specify from the Mode pull-down menu on the action bar. "


If you already have 10 commands you need to delete commands before new ones can be stored. To do this do following:

Change MODE to DELETE:

Then you see see following for example 'press enter to Delete command'

Code:

 Menu  List  Mode  Functions  Utilities  Help

 Enter TSO or Workstation commands below:                                       
                                                                               
 ===>                                                                           
                                                                               
                                                                               
 Place cursor on choice and press enter to Delete command   
                                                           
=> time                                                     
=> IND$FILE PUT SCRATCH.TEXT ASCII CRLF RECFM(V) LRECL(133)



now put cursor on line you want to delete and press enter.

Also make sure that UPDATE is on from LIST option.

Refer to manual for more details:

Hope this helps.

Missed one more thing, after deleting commands, use FUNCTIONS - Compress List to take out blank lines.

If it is like this, then it means UPDATE IS ON

Code:


2  *. Update On
   2. Update Off
