As a new mainframe developer, I'm still quite used to snazzy IDEs that make reading/editing code a lot easier. And about 99% of the time, I'm able to use them. However, inevitably, I have to resort to viewing a dataset via green screen.

I'm able to enable HILITE when editing a file, but I haven't been able to when browsing one. I know the simple solution would be to just go into edit mode, but I figured surely it could be enabled for browse mode too?


TLDR: Is there any way to enable HILITE when in browse mode?

Use VIEW instead of BROWSE.

View allows you to display source data or output listings. With View,
members of partitioned data sets, DASD-resident sequential data sets,
or z/OS UNIX files can be displayed, and updated using Edit primary
and line commands. Changes to data are not saved.

re: used to snazzy IDEs

fyi. I am retired now, but during the last few years that I was working, we used Rational Developer for Z. It used VS Code for editing on Windows, but had capability to store, compile and build to a mainframe. And, I recall it had an interactive debugger.
