I would like to have a TSO 3270 application be able to use TPUT to cause a Windows PCOM 3270 client to run an arbitrary PCOM macro.

For example, using its VSTEXEC support, I can TPUT a Write Structured Field to the client and the Vista3270 3270 Emulator will intercept that and execute a Vista3270 macro. www.tombrennansoftware.com/vista123.pdf page 142

Is there a way to do this (or some other method) under PCOM?

I cannot speak directly to your question, but one of the examples cited in the Vista manual uses VSTEXEC to initiate a file transfer from the host.

If that is what you are considering, an easy (i.e. emulator independent) way to do this is to use the ISPF Workstation Agent. When WSA is running on your desktop, you can use ISPF FILEXFER service via a Rexx program or via ISPF option 3.7

If you have something else in mind, then you can disregard what I just said.

I have to be able to do this from an application using TPUT.

VSTEXEC and Vista3270 belong to the Brennan tools family, so they can communicate any way their father wants.

That means that TPUT used in the Brennan way will NOT work with other terminal emulators.

I am not necessarily looking for an exact replacement for VSTEXEC. I'll take another approach that achieves a similar result.
