Is it possible to display records of a file in reverse order, without using an array?

Hello,

Assign a sequence number to each record then sort the records in descending sequence number order.

something like
Code:

//STEP0200 EXEC PGM=ICEMAN     
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*         
//SORTIN   DD *                 
FIRST                           
SECOND                         
THIRD                           
//SORTOUT  DD SYSOUT=*         
//SYSIN    DD *                 
  INREC FIELDS=(1,80,SEQNUM,8,ZD)
  SORT FIELDS=(81,8,ZD,D)       
  OUTREC FIELDS=(1,80)
