These days (since almost all of the "3270" connectivity is done via tcp/ip), it is more common to use ftp to pull data from your mainframe into a folder on the desktop or a server.
Most desktop tcp/ip software comes with an ftp client built-in.
I'm not sure what this means
how to do it without using more commands
To transfer a file some additional commands must be issued - it just a matter of which ones/ which transfer method. I'm unaware of any software that will just grab the right data from the mainframe and place it in the right place on the win-based system with no interaction (commands) from the user.
