you would be better off trying to find
  • a compile listing (on dasd)
  • a ddio file
and rebuild the source from one of them. That is the only way you are going to come close to Reference names that mean anything.
if you have only the object,
there are 3rd party tools that you can buy that will generate a rather 'user-unfriendly' source.
Which means Reference Names will not be based on the original data definitions.
Short of that, you need to find a back-up.

That should be typo -- nothing much to hype on that.

Do you have such a tool at your shop? I have never used such a tool but I always wonder how do they do it even if in a 'user-unfriendly' manner, what logic do they use aftetr all?

PS. Sorry if I'm going out of the way...

object modules have a record layout. different records for different requirements. it is just a matter of decoding the records, decoding the code and stuffing reference names after instructions. (actually, it is not that easy, but it can be done).

Hello,

If they work from the load module only, there is nothing at all friendly about the generated source. . . There can't be as the load module does not have "user friendly" content. The kindest thing i can say is that sometimes the code will compile clean and when executed provide equivelent functionality.
