If you looking for a TSO command, here it is

Code:
TSO DEL 'HLQ.COB.COB(MEM1)'

Hi Aaru,

Can we use IDCAMS in this case instead of IKJEFT01?

Do you mean that, delete all the members starting with PTSS**?

If above is the case, then go in to the PDS and give the following in the command line
Code:
S  PTSS* D

All the member names starting with PTSS will be deleted.

I never knew the S XXX* D format.

Works, I see, with other line commands, like E, to step thru each member in EDIT mode. To do this, one can also use the E line command by the dataset and follow the dataset name with (XXX* - all beginning XXX) or (%%%%%%%P - all length 8 ending P).

Thanks.

Here are some short TSO commands

Code:

S XXX* R
=> for mass rename

S XXX* C
=> for mass copy

S XXX* E
=> for mass EDIT

S XXX* D
=> for mass delete

krisprems -

It is an ISPF command, not TSO.


Phil -

The SELECT (abbreviated as S) command is well documented in the fine manual.

I'm OK with manuals, but since the ISPF F1 help is loaded with excellent info, I'm wondering if this version of S is somewhere there.

Thanks.

I believe the F1 help is actually an abstract of the fine manuals.
