write 'KEYS' on the command line and you should see the list.

Mine shows this:

Code:

PF1 . . . HELP                                               
PF2 . . . SPLIT                                               
PF3 . . . END                                                 
PF4 . . . RETURN                                             
PF5 . . . IFIND                                               
PF6 . . . BOOK                                               
PF7 . . . UP                                                 
PF8 . . . DOWN                                               
PF9 . . . SWAP                                               
PF10  . . LEFT                                               
PF11  . . RIGHT                                               
PF12  . . RETRIEVE

Do you mean only tso/ispf?

Most applicatons define the function keys as they want to. This includes applications that run under a tso/ispf menu.

Try using the tutorial (option T I think) and PF1 - help.

There are no commands like this, unless you define them yourself, which is a useless suggestion to give to someone who's obviously never used a z/OS system.

Hi surendra,

I would suggest you to google for TSO commands, if thats what you are looking for.

You should be aware that different screens (panels) have their own key definitions, so don't be surprised when you change some on one screen and don't find that change on another.

Also, if you change some, but then get timed-out-logged-off, they won't be saved.

The Shift versions are especially useful to redefine as you find uses.

E.g., for many screens, F12 is RETRIEVE, which recalls previous ISPF commands in reverse order. I set Shift-F12 (may be called F24) to RETP, which gives a list of the most recent 25 commands, available for recall and modification.

Experiment.

ISPF is pretty good about context-specific help. On most screens (aka panels), you can press PF1 and get a SHORT help screen.

If it's longer than a page, press ENTER to page forward.

These are the same 'helps' you get in the tutorial, and it's better to read things there, like Nic pointed out. I find it's easier to navigate there.

You can use
Code:
PFSHOW ON
to see the key definitions at the bottom of the screen. or
Code:
PFSHOW TAILOR
to make some changes, like using 24 keys.
