I am looking for a REXX, which can expand a COBOL program including all its copy statements. (similar to what we see in a listing using Changeman or Endevor)

Please search the forum, this or something similar has been asked umpteen times before.

I can not recall what the answers were, so I'm afraid you will have to learn to search

I concur with Expat. It's been discussed numerous times, but last I knew you'll need to write your own program.

As Kevin says, and I believe the same.

All those that had asked the same question may or may not have scuttled off and written their own code. If they did, they sure did not post any of it on our forum.

Why bother if you can just compile it and get a listing?

Can this not be achieved using the IBM utility ISRLEMX ? Though why you'd want to invoke it from REXX eludes me.....

Google ISRLEMX to find details on using this.

If my changeman is down and I want to view listing of anyh component, then this REXX will help me a lot.

That's as may be, but what's wrong with running a batch job to execute ISRLEMX? If you need to manipulate the output, you can output it to a dataset or capture the output from (e.g.) SDSF. You could even pass the output to a compile step.

If you really need to, you could invoke ISRLEMX from REXX. There are many examples of invoking programs from REXX in the forum.

Do you've workbench available at your shop? You can compile your Cobol program through that if change man is down and then look at the listing generated there.

I believe that won't work Robert -- change man libraries are, usually, not allowed to update by some RACF ID. When I try to do that, JCL syntax chekcer says
Code:
==MSG> .JAAN     8 DSS4757E - UPDATE ACCESS TO DATA SET DENIED TO USER XX1234X

well changeman could be down due to corrupted data via usage of REXX scripts outside of the changeman/endevor environement.

Not every time, But sometimes changeman takes 1-2 hrs to get up and working (this might be due to some maintenance)

What I wana do is, we already have LST libraries when we compile a program, my REXX should decode and provide me the lilsting. Not sure who come changeman will get corrupted due to this.
