Hi,

I want to insert comments (//*) in JCL by moving the lines using REXX or CLIST. If i will give Line Command like 'CM' and when i will enter the marked lines will need to be comment out. Please help me the code for this.

Hello and welcome to the forum,

First - if you want to be successful using the forum, you need to create a subject that describes briefly what you want to learn or are having problems doing. A subject of "Need Help" is just a complete waste of everyone's time.

When looking for help, it is expected that you tell us what you have tried so far and what problems you have encountered.

why not create a member in you pds called work,
which contains 1 line consisting of //*.
then just copy where you want.

you say you want to insert comments,
and you say you want to have 'marked' (what ever that means) lines commented out.

do you want to do two things or 1?

also, don't post the same question in two forums simultaneously.

your bad manners are only exceeded by your inability to express yourself.

Hi,

I apologies for described such type of topic name. And I agree that this post was asked in other forum site which is posted by one of my friend. Actually we both are seeking help for the same problem. I am giving you again my requirement with example and please help me with CLIST or REXX code.

Code:

I would suggest:

labeling line 11 with .a and line 28 with .b

then command line:

Code:
chg all .a .b '//' '//*//' 1


even:
command line
Code:
keys


i used PF1 for this example:
Code:

                                Keylist Utility
    File

  QFOS#1                  ISR Keylist ISRSPEC Change        Row 1 to 12 of 24
  Command ===>                                             Scroll ===> PAGE

  Make changes and then select File action bar.

  Keylist Help Panel Name . . . ISRSPECH

  Key       Definition                                 Format  Label
  F1 . . .  chg all .a .b '//' '//*//' 1               SHORT   Help
  F2 . . .  SPLIT                                      LONG    Split
  F3 . . .  EXIT                                       SHORT   Exit
  F4 . . .  :TS                                        LONG    :TS
  F5 . . .  RFIND                                      SHORT   Rfind
  F6 . . .  RCHANGE                                    SHORT   Rchange
  F7 . . .  UP                                         LONG    Up
  F8 . . .  DOWN                                       LONG    Down
  F9 . . .  SWAP                                       LONG    Swap
  F10  . .  LEFT                                       LONG    Left
  F11  . .  RIGHT                                      LONG    Right
  F12  . .  RETRIEVE                                   SHORT   Retrieve


then all you would have to do is put .a on line 11, .b on line 28 and PF1.

why not use a sequence of simple ISPF editing commands ???

move the cursor to the first line to be commented and type .a in the label/number area

move the cursor to the last line to be commented and type .b in the label/number area,

in the command line type c '//' '//*//' .a .b 1 all

easy, effective no edit macro issues

I have posted this before, but as the SEARCH doesn't appear to be working too well at the moment
Code:
"ISREDIT MACRO NOPROCESS"
"ISPEXEC CONTROL ERRORS RETURN"
"ISREDIT PROCESS RANGE N"
"ISREDIT (FRL) = "LINENUM .ZFRANGE
"ISREDIT (TOL) = "LINENUM .ZLRANGE
"ISREDIT LABEL "FRL" = .A"
"ISREDIT LABEL "TOL" = .B"
"ISREDIT C '//' '//*~' 1 ALL .A .B "
"ISREDIT RESET LABEL"
EXIT (1)

let' s move to the philosophical side of things,
in general when commenting jcl streams I prefer to shift everything 4 chars to the right
and overlay the first 4 char with //*> in order o preserve also the layout of <data> statements
so to uncomment a shift left ((4 would be enough
naturally with the hope that each statement jcl/data does not extent after column 68

Gosh, I always thought there had to be a blank after //*

How about including the column boundaries for the change?

What I'd also consider is shift right 4, for you block of lines. Then copy a comment line overlaying the block.

These ways, you'd definitely only get first // on line. Else, sometime, you might hit a comment with // in it. Which gets you into a macro again.

To get rid of the comments again, a destructive left shift is an option to the change to nothing.

Learn the editor (I'm a bit out of date, which is why I'm being a bit general, plus you get a bit of learning finding out what I mean). There is much you can do with it without having to write something specific.

One little hint extra. Unless you are a top-line thinker, don't assign an edit string to a key you already use for something else.

I do have a preferred method of using IF/THEN/ELSE processing which removes the need for shifting and overlay, also a macro.
