I have 5 records in a PS file. How can we write it in a file in the reverse order using SORT.

Sample Input File :

KEVIN 
SMITH 
JAMES 
JONE  
ANTONY

Expected Output File :

ANTONY    
JONE      
JAMES     
SMITH     
KEVIN   

Input file need not be in sorted order. But we have to reverse the contents.

Regards
R KARTHIK

Hi,

I got the code from previous forums.

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN                     
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*                     
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file (FB/80)                               
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file (FB/80)                       
//SYSIN    DD    *                           
* Add seqnum.
  INREC OVERLAY=(81:SEQNUM,8,ZD)             
* Sort on seqnum descending.
  SORT FIELDS=(81,8,ZD,D)   
* Remove seqnum.                 
  OUTREC BUILD=(1,80)

INREC OVERLAY=(81:SEQNUM,8,ZD) - 8 byte sequence no is overlaid in the 81st column. so first record wud have 00000001, second record 00000002, third record 00000003 and so on

SORT FIELDS=(81,8,ZD,D) - then sorting is done based on the sequence no (descending order)

OUTREC BUILD=(1,80) - seq no's are removed

comments are there in the code.
