Hi All,

I would also like to add some more tips to the above list of wonderful collections.

Use this in ISPF 3.4 (Use these in the 'COMMAND' field after your dataset is displayed)

1) DUP - One step method to allocate and/or copy sequential and partitioned files. A real time saver!

2) ATR - Displays LISTCAT information in an edit session (line commands!). Especially useful for VSAM, tape info.

3) QDS - Who has your file? Find out the job, task, or TSO user

iknow -

All the three commands you specified are not ISPF's, probably local REXX/CLIST.

I tried the tip # 002 and it didn't work at all !
Then I tried it on my other TSO and it did.

Then I realised that the first one is a DEMOpkg on IBM TESTMVS where it's running under ISPF IPT which I am kinda testing in a slow meandering way whilst between projects !

There is a very similar option Z by the same path 3.4 -> Sel member of PDS and type Z ...
Code:
IQIMSTAT -------------------- MSL STATS SETTINGS PANEL ------------------------
COMMAND ===>                                                                   
                                                                               
Remove statistics ===> N (Y=yes, N=no)                                         
                                                                               
For option N above, specify below the statistic values to be applied.         
                                                                               
                          CHANGED                                             
MEMBER   VV.MM CREATED  DATE    TIME   SIZE  INIT  MOD   USERID               
SUBPARM  =_ =_    =       =       =      =     =    =    =_______             
Example: 01 =                                            SE16661               
                                                                               
NOTES: - A blank field indicates that the statistic field be calculated.       
                                                                               
       - An equals sign (=) indicates that the current statistic field         
         should not be changed.  For members without current statistics,       
         the equals sign is treated as a blank.                               
                                                                               
       - Under VV, MM, and USERID you can type in the values you want to       
         store in the corresponding statistic fields.                         
                                                                               
                 Press ENTER to proceed or the END key to cancel.             


IPT is IBM's ISPF Productivity Tool was formerly sold as SPIFFY for ISPF from Isogon Corporation.

I checked up on the general availability of this release...

IBM Software Group, NY wrote:
It so happens that we recently updated the free-for-all "IPT Trial Version" with an expiration-date of 12/31/2007. Note: this is actually the full GA release with all available maintenance. There is just one module that includes a built-in expiration-date "time bomb" that (at expiration) simply disables the IPT functionality. If a customer that installed this version (via SMP) signs for a license, he gets a ++APAR to remove the "time bomb" without a need to reinstall the product.


Please visit and download it at:
Code:
http://www.ibm.com/software/os/zseries/trials/ispf/

There are also some useful documents on the many ways to use this mass of tools to save time and make you more productive.

Jagan-S:

Do you have a 3290 terminal? Have you been reading the restriction regarding SPLITV in the fine manual?

Regarding AUTOTYPE, please refer to the fine manual to learn why this command is not so trivial.

Reply with quote

HI ALL,

I want to take a copy of the same memeber with different name in same PDS. I am able to do this by giving C in front of the needed member and then typing the Project Group Type and new member name.

Is there any simpler way of doing it by giving some * in Project, Group and Type, so that i need not type in the current dataset name again.

This may sound weird, but I feel there mit be an option to do this.

Some tips from my side:

Type ‘C’ in a line - it copies that line.
Type ‘Cn’ (n -> 1,2,...) - ‘n’ number of lines copied from the line where you typed ‘Cn’.
Type CC and CC in different lines, the number of lines between block have been copied
Type ‘A’ - it pastes the line copied after the line where you typed ‘A’.
Type ‘B’ - it pastes the line copied before the line where you typed ‘B’.
Type ‘An’ - it pastes the line copied ‘n’ times after the line where you typed ‘A’.
Type ‘Bn’ - it pastes the line copied ‘n’ times after the line where you typed ‘B’.
Type ‘M’ in a line - it copies that line. When you type ‘A’ or ‘B’ after that, the line actually gets moved. It is something like Cut + paste. But ‘C’ is something like Copy + Paste
Type MM and MM in different lines, the number of lines between block have been copied
Type R, it copies the line and pastes in the next line.
Type RR and RR between two different lines, the block is copied and pasted on the next line.

To add to spanda, you may also put DSNVIEW on the command like and give the DSN name to open it in view mode directly.

This works for z/OS. I haven't tried for others:

If you want to issue X ALL; F <STRING> ALL,
you can just type in Y <STRING>

Hello,

"Y" may be a local command at your shop, which is mapped to the combination of above used two commands - it does not work for me.

Many site-specific tools have a wide following and if they are completely rexx or clist, they are often carried from place to place in the same area by people changing jobs or simply sharing with others in the field at some other company.
