So I'm slowly releasing some of the REXX execs I wrote over the past 25+ years to all of you (see Prino's z/OS Tools and utilities ) and the next in line is Formatted Browse itself, at the moment only RAP00110, the PL/I %include book parser is available, with three edit macros to show what it can do, EINC2FOC, ESORT and ESYMSORT.

However Formatted Browse (and its sibling, Formatted Edit) are slightly more complex animals, in that they use ISPF panels for their input, and those panels, written, more or less on-the-fly, way back in the mid-1990'ies, and only updated in 2009 to put them under the provisions of the GPL V3, are, how shall I express myself politely, rather colourful and don't really follow the standard conventions.

So, can anyone give me any suggestions for creating a panel with where the user can specify up to eight input three-qualifier (Project/group/Type) datasets (with obviously also space for datasets not in that format), and for each of them up to eight additional strings, in casu one or two 10-character keys, one or two four-character positions, one or two key-types, an "And/or" indicator and a "Use" field. I know I can make it a big scrollable panel, but I'd prefer something a bit more compact. In addition, is there an easy way of validating everything without repeating the same code ad nauseam (other than using PANEL REXX)?

Robert

PS: PM me with a valid email address if you want a copy of the current panel, it will come in a ZIP file (RAP00100.ZIP).

I'm not converting assembler (or any other languages) to HTML, I'm just converting source into a html format that mimics the appearance in the ISPF editor, so that the result can be used to show the code at locations where no live z/OS system is present. Just take a look at any of the execs linked to from Prino's z/OS Tools and utilities, and you might agree that something like EHIREXX.EXEC looks a bit better than the same thing in Black & White.
