This is a real world question - not an assignment for school.

I support a system that has no historical record of job runs. It is a frustrating support problem because I am unable to reference previous runs of any given job (I know, a rinky-dink shop).

The JESLOGs go to IOF, where they reside for a couple of days, then are permanently deleted.

What can I use to "scrape" the JESLOGs and store them in a file of some sort for retrieval?

I worked at a place before that had such a scrape program that ran through CA-7 and the "database" had a REXX interface that allowed you to select previous executions by system and job name. No, they won't share - I already asked!

How difficult would it be to develop something in REXX (is that the correct tool to use?) for a non-REXX programmer? I've seen some examples of doing this with SDSF applications, but I couldn't get them to work with my IOF one.
