I just spent 30 minutes searching IBM sites for what I used to know as (IIRC) the Supervisor and I/O Macros manual...you know, OPEN, CLOSE, SAVE, RETURN, PDUMP..... and the closest I could find was one for VSE - which ain't gonna help me here...... icon_confused.gif

Any pointers?

BTW, on the other forum, I would have posted this in "Stupid Questions".... icon_wink.gif

Hi ! Also, if you could find them:

VSE/ESA Systems Macros User Guide
VSE/ESA System Macro Reference
And other Sub System ManualsPOWER, VSAM, etc.

And btw, i used PDUMP during VSE-Times, 30 years ago. Under MVS or Z/OS use the SNAP macro.

Hi CICS Guy !

Here's a little documentation.

You could take a so called SNAP Dump. Therfore first you have to code a special DCB in the programm.

Programm:
SNDCB DCB DSORG=PS,RECFM=VBA,BLKSIZE=882,
MACRF=(W),LRECL=125,DDNAME=SNDUMP

Then in the programm at the point of your desire, you can take a storage, register, field or whatever dump via snap macro.

mvc
mvc
SNAP DCB=SNDCB,STORAGE=(FIELD_A1,FIELD_A9)
mvc
mvc

Complete SNAP command:

SNAP DCB=SnapDcbName
ID=IdNumer
PDATA=(Field,Field...)
STORAGE=(Beginn,End)
LIST=Adress

Please look at Ass-Bookmanager for further details.

Regards, UmeySan
