BROWSE Macros, Clists, and Executes
CLISTS and COMMANDS -- general information
The original commands that would access information on clists and commands were
as follows: The first would access preformatted material the same or similar to
what can be found at the site. The second would create place HELP
information from TSO into a temporary file in EDIT mode for easier examination:
COMMAND ===> TSO CLIST xxxxxxx HELP (for clists mainly)
COMMAND ===> TSO QHELP xxxxxxx HELP (for commands only)
CLISTS relative to the HELP section
TECH.INFO.TEXT(TECHDS) -- contains dataset names and descriptions.
(===> tso infohelp techds)
===> TSO LISTDD ddname -- to display datasets allocated to a ddname.
===> TSO LISTDS 'proj.group.type' -- to display dataset attributes. Can also
use quick access to PDF 3.2 using ===> TSO Q DATASET
===> TSO WHOGOT proj.group.type) -- to find out who is allocated to a speci-
fied dataset (no not use quotes).
Datasets -- DMS, TLMS
===> TSO $DMS only(4) -- Use to find out information on current disk da-
===> TSO $MIDI -- Use to find out information on current datasets
===> TSO $MIDITL -- Use to find out information on current data-
sets, has information from TLMS merged in, including TRS (Tape Re-
tention System) information.
===> TSO TLMS53 -- Use to find out the very latest and complete
information stored in TLMS. Once invoke to display a volume you be-
gin by typing in ===> =VL01
Panels, CLISTS, Procs
===> TSO CLIST xxxxx -- Use to locate and browse a clist.
===> TSO LOADMOD xxxxx -- Use to locate/browse members in SVCLIB, LPALIB,
===> TSO MODELT xxxxxx -- Use to browse a member in TSOMODEL.PUBLIC.TEXT
Similar datasets using MODELC and MODELT
===> TSO PANELS xxxxx -- Use to locate and browse a PANEL.
To determine the names of panels enter COMMAND ===> PANELID, you will
now see the panel names in the upper left corner of your screen.
===> TSO PDSDD ddname xxxxx -- Use to locate and browse a member in your
ddname concatenation. Substitutions will be made accordingly if
ddname is PANELS (ISPPLIB), MESSAGE (ISPMLIB), CLIST (SYSPROC),
===> TSO PROC xxxxx -- Use to locate and browse a JCL procedure.
