I started working on one of the automated code(COBOL) generator tool.
What i thought i will create one panel in which i will give the pgm name, Various input file names names and output PDS name. After putting the values the cobol skeleton shud created in one of the PDS member.
To implement this i will create various skeletons in one of the PDS.
And in the program code i will call various skeletons of the COBOL pgm and do the the file tailoring on that by using FTOPEN, FTINCL and FTCLOSE command.
My query is that if i want to repeat some lines of logic N no. of times and in that lines of code contain &&Variable which i have to replace with various input values which i given in the panel..
Let us say,in the input panel i have given 10 files and the file skeleton contain file opening logic. I want to repeat that for all then files and want to require in to the output member
