Hi,

I am running a REXX script that will open a program in edit mode and issue HILITE command for syntax highlight.

Code:

ISPEXEC EDIT DATASET("PGMNAME") MACRO(HION)


Content of HION is as below.

Code:

/*****REXX*****/               
ADDRESS ISREDIT               
"ISREDIT MACRO"               
"ISREDIT HILITE COBOL        "


There are few IP available for developers to connect,they all run different type of VTAM server.

Some of these IP's (terminal) supports the HILITE command some doesnt.
The terminal supports the HILITE command this macro run fine but those doesnt support gives an error. ( which is expected)

Is there any way I can find out inside my REXX that
"Wheather this termilar support HILITE " - maybe some session related info that will tell me what kind of terminal is it ?

thanks,
Dwijadas

The ISPF system variable ZHILITE contains "YES" is Extended Highlight is available.

In addition, the system variable ZTERM contains the current terminal.
