Can anybody provide me the Rexx code for the following requirement.

If we give the GDG base name then all available genrstions of that particular GDG file should should be written to an output file.

Ex: when I Give TY205.TEST.GDG and it has 3 generations say

TY205.TEST.GDG.G0001V00
TY205.TEST.GDG.G0002V00
TY205.TEST.GDG.G0003V00

Then the Output file should contain.

TY205.TEST.GDG
TY205.TEST.GDG.G0001V00
TY205.TEST.GDG.G0002V00
TY205.TEST.GDG.G0003V00

Code:

//DDNAME DD DISP=SHR,DSN=gdg_name

Jcl will treat Your dsn specification as if You ad concatenated all
the gdg versions

//DDNAME DD DISP=SHR,DSN=gdg_name(0)
//       DD DISP=SHR,DSN=gdg_name(-1)
//       DD DISP=SHR,DSN=gdg_name(-2)
//       DD DISP=SHR,DSN=gdg_name(...)
//       DD DISP=SHR,DSN=gdg_name(...)
//       DD DISP=SHR,DSN=gdg_name(-n)


so no need to use additional tools to achieve what You want

Code:

//GENRSTEP EXEC PGM=IEBGENER
//SYSPRINT   DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN      DD DUMMY
//SYSUT1     DD DISP=SHR,DSN=gdg_base_name
//SYSUT2     DD DISP=(NEW....)
//              DSN=all_gdg_data,
//              allocation_parameters


the jcl above with the obvious adjustment will accumulate all the
versions of a gdg in a single dataset
