Hi Everyone,
I need a JCL to replace a part of my code in cobol with other code. To be precise , in my cobol code there are
Code:
++INCLUDE
statements.

I have to replace them with:
Code:
**CHANGES START
**++INCLUDE xyz
   COPY xyz.
**CHANGES END

Please help me in writing a JCL. Thanks in advance.

One way of doing this is to use your site's SORT utility.

(but, of source, that's a different part of the forum - not JCL)

FMNZ could be another approach for this. Let us know your precise FROM/TO, using code tags.

Welcome!
REXX could do this other than DFSORT . Do some research please and you would certainly get some ideas to start with.

If it is a single line only to be replaced by multiple ones, I think what Garry has suggested will work best. Unload the Members to a PS and do the change, reload when done.

I would say, the JCL is the only tool out of hundreds other tools which CANNOT do this task... 353.gif 358.gif 12.gif 2020.gif

Looking at the ++INCLUDE xyz statement I think the TS is talking about a Panvalet proprietary dataset. And that is not an IBM PDS. So processing the members to change the ++INCLUDE statements wil acquire using Panvalet utilities to extract the data to apply the changes.

. not to mention the challenge around the naming of members - Panvalet allows 10-character member names.....

(had the pain of that conversion some years ago icon_sad.gif )
