There is a thread for passing parms for ISRSUPC in COBOL, which is helpful, but incomplete for me. I don't know how to pass the search string or where the results go, or what they look like. A sample CALL would be very much appreciated.

I would like to search, in a loop, working storage fields from a DCLGEN in several PDS COBOL libraries. This particular DCLGEN has 131 fields. I don't want to do 131 separate batch searches to find the programs in which these fields occur. There are many more DCLGENS I need to use, but this is one of the bigger ones.

Thanks,

Cobol is Turing complete, and so is Brainf*ck, but I wouldn't write any accounting system with it.

Use a language that's better suited, like REXX!

Or formulated differently: Law of the instrument
