TSO Line Mode Commands

These are TSO line mode commands. There is generally no ISPF screen that will do the same thing. For help on the commands,
- on any ISPF screen, type TSO HELP;
choose a command, then type TSO HELP command-name.
or use Quick Reference by typing QW on any ISPF screen
then specify IBM as vendor
then search for TSO SYSHELP

There are 6 places you can execute TSO commands. Read the parts about continuing!
1. In a REXX program.
The command must be enclosed in quotes (") or apostrophes (').
Quotes are preferred, because they conflict less
with the apostrophes that some TSO commands require.

Example of an ALLOCATE command in a REXX program:
"ALLOC DDN(INFILE) SHR REUSE DSN(MY.DATA)"

When there is a variable in the command you want REXX to process the variable.
Quotes prevent REXX from processing the variable.
Remove the variable from the quotes.
Example of an ALLOCATE with the dataset name in a variable.
Dataset_Name = "MY.DATA"
"ALLOC DDN(INFILE) SHR REUSE DSN("Dataset_Name")"

Commands for ISPF are prefixed by ADDRESS ISPEXEC, for example:
ADDRESS ISPEXEC "SETMSG MSG(ISRZ001)"

Commands for ISPF editor are prefixed by ADDRESS ISREDIT, for example:
ADDRESS ISREDIT "CHANGE ALL DNS DSN"


Continuing. Break the command into two parts.
Enclose each part in quotes. End the first part with a comma.
EXAMPLE:
"ALLOC DDN(INFILE)SHR REUSE?,
?DSN(MY.DATA)"

2. In a CLIST.
The command is entered into the CLIST as shown in the examples.
Example of an ALLOCATE command in a CLIST:
ALLOC DDN(INFILE) SHR REUSE DSN(MY.DATA)

When there is a variable in the command, put the variable
in the command and be sure it is prefixed with an ampersand (&).

Example of ALLOCATE in a CLIST with the dataset name in a variable:
SET &DATASET_NAME = MY.DATA
ALLOC DDN(INFILE) SHR REUSE DSN(&DATASET_NAME)


Continuing. Break the command into two parts. End the first part with a hyphen or +. The + causes leading spaces on the next line to be deleted..
EXAMPLE:
ALLOC DDN(INFILE) SHR REUSE -
DSN(&DATASET_NAME)

3. In ISPF Option 6.
Enter the command as shown in the examples
Example of an ALLOC command in ISPF Option 6:
ALLOC DSN(MY.DATA) SHR REUSE DDN(INFILE)


Continuing. Just keep typing. There?s room..


4. On any ISPF screen except Option 6.
Enter the command as shown in the examples, prefixed with "TSO".
Example of an ALLOCATE command in ISPF Option 6:
TSO ALLOC DDN(INFILE) SHR REUSE DSN(MY.DATA)


Continuing. You are out of luck. There?s not much room.


5. In line mode TSO, known as "Ready mode". I.E., you are not in ISPF.
Enter the command as shown in the examples
Example of an ALLOCATE command in line mode TSO.
ALLOC DDN(INFILE) SHR REUSE DSN(MY.DATA)


Continuing. Just keep typing. There?s room..


6. In a batch job where the program IKJEFT01 is executed, known as TSO in batch.
Enter the command as shown in the examples
Example of an ALLOCATE command in a batch job.
ALLOC DDN(INFILE) SHR REUSE DSN(MY.DATA)

Example in context:
//STEP1 EXEC PGM=IKJEFT01,DYNAMNBR=200
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSTSPRT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSTSIN DD *
ALLOC DDN(INFILE) SHR REUSE DSN(MY.DATA)
/*

Continuing. There are only about 67 positions available
Break the command into two parts. End the first part with a hyphen.
EXAMPLE:
ALLOC DDN(INFILE) SHR REUSE -
DSN(MY.DATA)








Interacting with files:

Create a catalogued disk file/dataset
ALLOCATE with the NEW keyword
ALLOC DSN(dataset-name) NEW (continued)
SPACE(10 5) TRACKS

Create a catalogued disk library/pds
ALLOCATE with the NEW keyword and the DIR keyword
ALLOC DSN(library name) NEW (continued)
SPACE(10 5) TRACKS DIR(10)

Connect a catalogued disk file/ dataset to a program for use as input or output
ALLOCATE with the SHR or OLD keyword and the DDN keyword
ALLOC DDN(ddname) SHR REUSE DSN(dataset-name)

Connect a catalogued library member/pds member to a program for use as input or output
ALLOCATE with the SHR or OLD keyword and the DDN keyword
ALLOC DDN(ddname) SHR REUSE (continued)
DSN(library-name(member-name))
Note that the library must exist.
The member must exist if it is input.
The member will be created or overwritten, if it is output.

Connect a catalogued disk file/ dataset to a program for use as output, lengthening (append) the file
ALLOCATE with the MOD keyword and the DDN keyword
ALLOC DDN(ddname) MOD REUSE DSN(dataset-name)

Create a catalogued disk file/dataset, or library/ pds that has the same attributes as another
ALLOCATE with the LIKE keyword
ALLOC DSN(dataset-name) LIKE(other-dataset-name)

Notes about ALLOCATE:
REUSE means that the DDN(ddname) should be released
from any previous use and used for this ALLOCATE
SPACE(10 5) means that the system should allocate
10 units of space immediately, 5 units later (up to 15 times as needed)
DIR(10) means that the system should reserve 10 blocks of
space for the directory that will keep track of the members.
1 directory block keeps track of 5 members.

Remove the connection between a file and a program that has been established with ALLOCATE and the DDN keyword

FREE DDN(ddname)

Copy a file to one that exists already, overlaying it.
(Allocate the output file first with ALLOC or ISPF 3.2)
REPRO INDATASET(?input dataset name?) (continued)
OUTDATASET(?output dataset name?)

Display the attributes of a file/dataset library/pds
LISTDS dataset-name or library

Display the attributes of a library/pds and list the member names
LISTDS library MEMBERS

SEND 'the message' USER(the-userid)the-userid may be *, which means to yourself

Transmit a message to a TSO user. Wait until the user is able to receive the message.
SEND 'the message' USER(the-userid) WAIT
the-userid may be *, which means to yourself

Transmit a message to a TSO user. The message will be delivered at once if the user is logged on. It will be delivered when the user logs on, if the user is now logged off.
SEND 'the message' USER(the-userid) LOGON
the-userid may be *, which means to yourself

Transmit a message to the console operator
SEND 'the message'

Send a dataset to another user (TSO or CMS)

Stop TSO from prefixing your logon userid to dataset names specified without apostrophes.
PROFILE NOPREFIX Not Recommended

Execute a program when you know which library it is on
CALL ?library-name(program-name)?

Execute a program that is on an automatic search library (?the linklist?)
CALL *(program-name)
You may also be able to execute a program by simply putting its name in quotes:
