Hi All icon_smile.gif ,

In our shop, we execute few utility programs like ISRSUPC, SORT, IDCAMS etc., without giving Joblib.

Is there any way to find the Load libraries of above utility programs? If so, please let me know how to find it...

Thanks.

Regards,
Ramanan R

Ramanan,

The load modules for SORT utilities would be in SYS2.LINKLIB. Try searching for SYS2.** for all the libraries.

Hi Aaru and Murali,

Thanks for your suggestions...

I found the Load library of ISRSUPC.. and it is ISP.SISPLPA...

My actual requirement is to call ISRSUPC from REXX either by TSO CALL function or by ISPEXEC SELECT command..

I tried both but none worked out...

As per the forum rules, i'll raise a question in REXX forum.

Regards,
Ramanan R

e.s,

Thanks for the link..

LINKMVS, LINKPGM, ATTCHMVS, and ATTCHPGM are returning a RC of -3, whose explanation is given in the same link as below.

Quote:

A -3 if the host command environment could not locate the program you specified


But i could locate the load module manually in ISP.SISPLPA...

Thanks & Regards,
Ramanan R

Code:

Address ISPEXEC SLECT PGM(ISRSUPC) PARM(&ZPARML)

e.s,

Thanks a lot...

Your code is working fine...

Can we execute other utilities like SORT, IDCAMS from REXX?

It can be done ...

allocate command is roughly the equivalent of a dd statement
Address LINK, LINKMVS, LINKPGM are roughly the equivalent of the EXEC statement
sysin/sysprint management is a pain in the *** :-)

but in my long experience I found only a handful of situations where
I had to do it ( AND NEVER for SORT) and only for systems related work !

To find out where the load of any particular program resides we can give the following command on the Command line

"TSO FDRDEBUG 'The program name'"

Isn't it a site-specific command?
