Hi,

I want to find out the source code of a program. which was used by my exec step. I searched in the step and job lib and able to get only the load module.
Please let me know is there any other way to get the source code of a program. If it is a system program then, in which library can we get its code. Is there any default library for those system programs.
If it is a user developed program where can we get that source.

Contact your peers or your site support group for this information. There is no standard way to store source code (some sites use LIBRARIAN, some use ENDEVOR, some use other products, some use PDS files only). Source code, once compiled, is not needed as part of the executing JCL and you won't usually find it in a running job. System source code location depends upon your site standards -- much system code is provided as object code only and therefore there is no source available on the system -- and even when provided the library names are site specific.

Site specific, you need to ask someone at your own site.

If it is a "system" program, the source is probably not available. . .

You need to check with your project team regarding the program.

Dick what does "System" program you are referring to? Can you cite some examples.

System programs would include File Aid, IDCAMS, ADRDSSU (DF/DSS), IEBGENER, IEBCOPY, Endevor, Xpediter, CA-7, and any other program supplied by a vendor or with the system.

As already told by Robert, that's site specific -- though you may try your luck by searching them under ISRDDN.
