I am trying to find out the source code of one of the rexx routines. I have searched through all the sysproc and sysexec allocated libraries. Can anybody give me any more pointers in this regard.

Might be you have done this already, however, for reference, I search all the libraries under ISRDDN with the command "MEMBER membername", whenever such a 'new' code comes my way.

If you don't know the source, then how do you know that the code is written in REXX? Maybe it resides as compiled code in a load module somewhere.

Where is your current member? If it is in SYSEXEC or SYSPROC, the rexx source might be within the compiled rexx program. You may be able to manually re-build the source with some hard work.

Well, the utility I am talking about is used in edit mode. I have searched through all the allocated libraries under ISRDDN but i couldn't find the source code.

Hi,
it could be a load module as previously mentioned, try typing LPA in ISRDDN before searching for the member.

Hello,

Could you find the executable? As Pedro mentioned, the source may be embedded in the executable module.

If this is the module/code that allows you to edit vsam files directly, i suspect that the code may be assembler. . .

Can you explain how the utility is invoked? What is the name?

I tried looking into LPALIB libraries. I don't have access to all the libraries. That utility might be in one of these libraries.

Utility opens up vsam in browse mode only.

Hello,

If you talk with your system support people, they should be able to tell you from which library the module is being executed. They can also tell what kind of module this is (rexx, assembler, etc). It may be part of some purchased/leased software.
