Hi Team,

I would ike to know whether ICETOOL would be a part of standard installations happening in MVS.

Because, when i used FILEAID.. i had Steplib to execute it.

But for ICETOOL it picked from a standard library.

Kindly help me in this

Thanks
Nirmal

Hi,

This is site specific. FILE-Aid, SORT are third party tools, they don't come with MVS installation, many sites asks for a specific library to invoke them & many not.

At my shop, FILEAID is invoked via
Code:
EXEC PGM=FILEAID

no steplib is needed. Same is for SORT/ICETOOL.

Nirmal,

DFSORT is an optional feature of z/OS and is installed with SMP/E. ICETOOL is included with DFSORT.

If your site has a license for DFSORT, then your System Programmers can either install DFSORT/ICETOOL so it is invoked automatically (the usual thing to do) or so it requires a JOBLIB or STEPLIB. If they install DFSORT/ICETOOL so it is invoked automatically, then you don't need to STEPLIB to it.

DFSORT is NOT a third party tool. It is an IBM utility. It actually is shipped with z/OS, but since it's an optional feature, it has to be enabled.
Syncsort is a third party tool.
