Hi,

Please provide me some inputs for below.

If we want to copy a dataset, we will give 'copy/C' in the dataset name.

What is the REXX command/syntax to retrieve this COPY command(or any command given by user to process dataset)?

Standard TSO doesn't have a COPY command. So, I'm a bit confused with what you're asking. Could you provide a few more details, or maybe re-word your question.

If we want to copy a dataset or delete a dataset, we give 'C or D' in the command line.

Still don't have a clue as to what you're talking about, although it sounds less likely that REXX can possibly have anything to do with it.

Let's cut to the chase - are we talking about commands run in a TSO session, ISPF commands issued within some ISPF dialog session, or ISPF EDIT Primary commands?

I don't know of any way to trap commands issued within a TSO session without delving into the inner workings of TSO.

Shobana,

If i understood you correcly, you are asking for REXX utility which will perform the same functionality as you provide C/D against a dataset in 3.4 mode.

I dont think we have any such utility, you need to cook up the code to your requirement.

Steps will go like this,

1.Get the DSN name, allocate a new dataset .
2. Have a loop to iterate till EOF and copy the line from input and write the same in output.
3.Terminate the program.

Get back to me, if you still have any queries.

I have used TSO COPY command in few of my REXX programs.

Code:

ADDRESS TSO "COPY '"FILE27"' '"FILE28"'"

Many, I would say most, of the communication issues on these forums are due to the fact
that many responders do not make any distinction from a vanilla/standard setup/environment
and make suggestions, give solutions based on they organization setup and installed products

so... it is not about being right or wrong but about giving answers which could apply to the O/P environment

"copy" could be anything, from a home written thing, to a program installed from some TSO add on product,
once upon a time there was an IBM product called TSO utilities which would give
additional tso commands ("copy" was one of them )and other front ends ( prompters ) for batch utilities.

regards

It might be standard from your point of view, not from an IBM product content perspective
the base product set ( TSO/E + ISPF ) does NOT contain any COPY command

I go with enrico.

Aaru,

Even in the below post, you have mentioned about "SWAT" which is custom built routine.

http://ibmmainframes.com/viewtopic.php?t=24259

I think in your project, there has been a lot of tools(custom) has been implemented.

Also I could not able to locate any command "Copy" as such in IBM Manuals.
