See for yourself how quickly you can master ISPF (Versions 2 and 3) for everyday programming tasks in your MVS shop. In this practical book, you'll learn:* how to browse a data set * how to edit a data set * how to use the ISPF utilities to manage your data sets and libraries * how to compile, link, and execute a program interactively * how to debug your COBOL programs interactively using the OS COBOL or VS COBOL II interactive debugger * how to process batch jobs in a background region * how to manage your background jobs more easily by using the spool Display & Search Facility (SDSF) * how to use member parts list, a facility that lets you track the use of subprograms and COPY members within program libraries * how to manage hierarchical program libraries with the Library Management Facility (LMF) or with the more sophisticated Software Configuration and Library Manager (SCLM) * and more!
