HI,

I am developing small tool to backup datset by typing BKP infront of the DSN. I have a small doubt regarding how to fetch the DSN name which got displayed in 3.4 option. i.e.
ex:

BKP ABC.BCD.XER.DFG
ABC.BCD.XYZ.MNO

how i can get the dataset name after BKP?

Thanks

what about showing a bit of ingenuity...
rexx script to find out what happens in 3.4
Code:
/*rexx */
Trace "O"
parse arg args
say args
exit


save it in Your sysproc/sysexec concatenation under a name of Your choice
and see what happens when You type it as a line command in 3.4
