If you're an ISPF user, you owe it to yourself to learn what's in this book. It starts off by teaching you how to use the TSO commands that underlie the ISPF options, so you have more control over MVS functions. You'll also learn what key tasks must be done using TSO commands (they can't be done with ISPF options).


  Next, this book shows you how to combine those TSO commands into time-saving procedures for the jobs you do most often, using either of TSO's procedure facilities--CLIST or REXX. So you'll learn:


  how to write and use edit macros that let you tailor the ISPF editor to your working style

how to use ISPF dialog manager to create CLIST or REXX procedures that interact with the terminal user via full-screen panels

how to use symbolic variables, built-in functions, and subprocedures in CLIST

how to use arrays, the stack , and parsing commands in REXX

and more!

  This book is for anyone who uses TSO. That includes beginning and experienced programmers, application and system programmers, and computer operators in an MVS shop.


  The only prerequisite is a basic knowledge of ISPF, enough so that you can access the TSO Command option to enter TSO commands and edit library members that contain CLIST or REXX procedures. If you aren't familiar with ISPF, take a look at first part of this series, MVS TSO, Part 1: Concepts and ISPF.
