Hi,
I started using file master tool very recently..

I use file master tool to view cobol copybook layout, but when I try to view assembler layout, it gives me error as period not present. Is there any way to view assembler copybook in file master tool or is it possible write rexx code to view assembler copybook? If yes, how can I start?

what do You mean by view assembler copybook ?
as a general programming concern ..
if You can express rules/describe a process without ambiguity
You have the proper skill
then ... you can write a program to solve/implement any rules/process of Your choice

but, alas, Your question is a bit ( at lest ) unclear so the answer is ...
YES, we do not know ( because the process is not clear )

for assembler copybooks/layouts the fastest thing would be to process them with assembler and parse the adata dataset
( the offsets and length are resolved and You do not have to rewrite the part of assembler dealing with symbols ))

Hi Enrico,

I suspect this is asking about expanding a copybook while looking at the source.

Possibly we'll get a clarification from chand.

I guess "File Master" is a 3rd-Party product and management has not paid for the "Assembler" option or perhaps, maybe it's not even offered?

Just write a small Assembler "shell" program, insert the copybook and Assemble it, using ISPF 4.1 (Assembler Foreground option).

If you're blocked from using 4.1, then submit this program as a Batch Assembly, without a Link-Edit step.

Either way, this should not be too difficult.

We had to do it this way back in the 70's.... icon_eek.gif
