Now the fun begins. A dialog has been designed that produces a pick list of objects from the pds.obj partitioned data set. When the desired member is clicked the name us stored then passed to the clist (command list) the invokes the linkage editor. The linkage editor I am referring to was covered in the previous blog article.
PROC 0 ISPEXEC LMINIT DATAID(DV) DATASET(PDS.OBJ) ISPEXEC LMOPEN DATAID(&DV) ISPEXEC LMMDISP DATAID(&DV) COMMANDS(ANY) ISPEXEC LMCLOSE DATAID(&DV) EX PDS.CLIST(ABLKED) '&ZLMEMBER 0' WRITE RETURN CODE IS &LASTCC MEMBER * &ZLMEMBER *
These point and click dialogs makes developing software on the IBM mainframe a breeze. The technician can concentrate on the solving the project problems without perfunctory overhead of the MVS, TSO ISPF and other overhead.
Beolw is a video that demonstrates the tool in action.
This as well as other offerings makes software development on the IBM mainframe a snap. Please do not hesitate to communicate with us in the comments of this post.
