Hi all,

I am planning to write a REXX code to take a spool (IOF) dump for a given job id

so do we have any existing IBM utilities which can be used to take a dump of given job id into a ps file.

Regards,
G Srini

Hello,

Possibly not an existing IBM utility as IOF is not an IBM product.

Suggest you look here:

There is the JES2 External Writer which backs up data from the spool but the backup format may not be what you want. You'd also need authority to issue JES2 commands.

Google JES2 External Writer, there's lots of hits on it.

Another option, have a look at ISPF option 3.8...that can get spool into a file so you may be able to do that from within REXX code somehow.

Time for a dump, I'm turtling!

Also look at SDSF in batch using the XDC command.
