Hi, can anyone point me to an online copy of this manual. I have done searches on the internent and on this forum but have yet to find it. I want to find the syntax and possible attributes of the DFHxxx type of macro statements the ones before command level. Thanks for any advice you can give me.

Hi Earl, thanks for the response. I am really looking for one of the old legacy Macro level manuals that explains the options supplied for all the macros (although even those 3 would help) I am converting a system from macro to command and have run the migration tool which converts some of the macros but not all. I went back into the migration tool document and it says in the bibliography that the macro reference it used was "application programmers reference manual sc33-0079" I don't believe this is language dependant as I had originally thought but so far I have yet to find it anyway. I can find any number of command level manuals but I want to cross reference back to macro so that I am sure of the original programmers intent and to check for any subtle things I could miss. I hope that gives better information on what I am trying to do and If you have any advice I would appreciate it. Harvey

Harvey,

Try Bob Yelavich, he is well known CICS IBM'r (retired).

http://www.yelavich.com/



You could also conisder bringing in some outside consultants (old macro
level coders')
or
taking a look at a software product like 'cics/comet' runs macro
level programs in new environments without any changes to the source
code.

Hi Earl, I happen to be an old macro level coder but my memory for that particular code is not great so I would like to have the manual as a reference. Also, the system has been running on Comet for a few years but it is not going to die as was anticipated. The client has spent a lot of money on this type of software so now wants to bite the bullet and run in a native way. thanks for the advice.

Harvey,

I cut my teeth on Macro Level also, and I might have an old manual
somewhere in my garage, but your best bet would be contacting Bob Yelovich.

Good Luck,
Earl

As you know, it won't be a "PL/I" guide, but just the reference manual... I found 'bitsaveres' but didn't see it there, there is a computer museum site out there - Google is your friend....
You might contact some of the vendors that sell macro emulation products, they might have something.....
The major problem is that CDs containing the CICS manuals didn't appear that long ago and book manager rather than PDFs were the primary source of online manuals back then - and BM didn't download that well....
I'll keep looking.....

William, thanks, I took Earls advice and sent Bob a note but he has moved most everything technical off his website as he is retired and want's the site to be more personal. But he still has some links that might produce something and of course he may get back to me with some wisdom. Thanks for your response and let me know if you come up with an idea. Harvey
