Guyz....

I am not sure whether my doubt is basic one or advanced one. But I dont have the answer rt now.

How to identify the versions of our OS/COBOL ..etc ...that is if someone asks what version we are working on?....whether its Z/OS or OS390??? For COBOL whether is COBOL-74/85, VS-COBOL II.

We knew some differences in its usages for COBOL. But is there any direct method to identify...Something like we do in our WIN -->About..in open systems.

Yes Priyesh..Thankx..

I cud see in SYSPRINT of the compilation spool. Its mentioned as Z/OS V1.

Is that mean Z/OS version 1?...

BTB....

In my understanding currently upto Z/OS V7.0 available in the market. So far how many versions we have with Z/OS? Any idea?

Also it would be greatful, if you could explain

How Z/OS differs from MVS ESA & MVS XA? If possible provide me a link to have the better understanding of all the OS involved in our mainframe system.

Thanks in adavnce

You can determine the z/OS level for your system if you logon to TSO and then get into ISPF on that system. The z/OS release level is contained in ISPF variable ZENVIR. Go to ISPF option 7.3 and you will see the setting for the ZENVIR variable.

OK, sorry, my mistake. ZENVIR gives the ISPF release level. The variable to check in 7.3 (or in any REXX exec or ISPF dialog element) is ZOS390RL. If you go into ISPF 7.3 and check the ZOS390RL variable (you may need to scroll down to see it) it will contain the release level for the z/OS system that copy of ISPF is executing on. On my system this variable contains 'z/OS 01.03.00', which is z/OS V1R3.
