Even though Dick Scherer commented on this inside another topic inside the JCL forum, I want to raise it again for more visibility.

From what I have observed the use of IEBCOPY, IDCAMS and the RESTART keyword would serve most requirements. There are occasional needs for the old utilities but IDCAMS for one is quite versatile.

Hi Tim,
