Hi all,

i have a requirement to find the position of last character in a particular JCL. Using LASTPOS function in REXX we can able to find the lastposition of the known character.

Ex: // MGMTCLAS=M35D06M,STORCLAS=SBTACH
// DISP=SHR

For the above two lines the last character position is different. i am intrested to know how to find the Last Character Position?

Please share your ideas.

for the solution to be simple You must assume that the statement contains no comment after the parameters...

something like

Code:

tmp = strip(stmt,"T"," ")
pos  = lenght(tmp)


if the line contain comments a forward parsing is needed

regards
