Is there a way I can extract the name of the 'current library' in the memberlist panel of DSLIST within REXX.

If i'm in an ISPF edit session, I can use commands like:

ADDRESS ISREDIT
"(MEMB) = MEMBER"
"(DSN) = DATASET"

But i need to be able to do this outside of the edit session.

I've tried using ISPF table ISRPLIST but no luck. Variable DSAPET01 is meant to show the most recently accessed library, but i'm getting inconsistent results.

My motivation for doing this is to address a limitation in SRCHFOR that does not allow for :
- multi-line regex expressions;
- logical AND joins between search terms

I've looked for other tools on our site but we don't have anything that will help.

Also - and this could be a shorter path to what I want - does anyone know if SRCHFOR supports user exits ?

I am not aware of any variable containing the name, but the zscreeni variable contains the screen image. Parse that for the datasetname.

I looked in 'ISPF Planning and customizing', which documents user exits. Section 'ISPF installation-wide exits' does not list anything for SRCHFOR.
