Native REXX:

2.5.9 Host Command Environments for Linking to and Attaching Programs from the z/OS V1R7.0 TSO/E REXX Reference manual. You can use ADDRESS LINKMVS or ADDRESS LINKPGM to call a program using the rules as indicated.

TSO/E:

1.10 CALL Command from the z/OS V1R7.0 TSO/E Command Reference manual. You can use the TSO CALL command to load and execute a program in executable form.

ISPF:

2.56 SELECT - Select a Panel or Function from the z/OS V1R7.0 ISPF Services Guide.

Hi Kevin,

your pointers areapperciated. the problem is that i am not that well versed with the REXX terminologies. If you could quote some REXX code with example libraries and program it would be a great help.

Thanks and Regards,
Milo.

I doubt you have gone thru the links posted by SuperK porperly.

For call command, at the end of the page, you have link for call command examples.
